The National Federation of Advanced Information Services (NFAIS) is offering a unique educational opportunity both in person and virtually. The hybrid workshop is titled “Creating and Harnessing the New Era of Data Sharing” and is scheduled for November 14, 2016 at 8:45 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (EST).

Researchers, government agencies, funders and publishers are implementing policies, best practices and models for data sharing. Together, these new developments in data sharing are providing critical new opportunities for innovations, services and discoveries in scholarly output and communications. And while these initiatives have the potential to deliver benefits to society as a whole, they can also be complicated and challenging at the same time.

This NFAIS Workshop will set out to examine intellectual property rights both in the EU and US in regard to data sharing, and will address standards, discovery and groundbreaking initiatives that sometimes create hurdles but ultimately bring us closer to consensus toward an open science, open data information community.
