Text and Data Mining and DG RTD (European Commission)

  1. 1. Text and Data Mining Jean-François Dechamp EC DG RTD A.6 Science Policy, Foresight and Data Science Europe WG on Research Data Brussels, 5 February 2015
  2. 2. Text and Data Mining (TDM): an opportunity for science An interdisciplinary way of knowledge discovering from large, unstructured sets of documents & data Potential value: improving productivity & competitiveness of European researchers One major barrier: a currently non 'TDM-friendly' copyright framework in the EU • Non-harmonised situation of copyright exceptions for research (optional, for non-commercial research only etc.) • Licences system rejected by academics (researchers & librarians) and not supported by innovative businesses
  3. 3. TDM and the modernisation of the EU copyright rules Legislative action as part of the DSM strategy • Simplify/modernise/harmonise copyright rules across the EU (i.e. bring them in line with today's reality) A political and technical challenge • Bring ambitious & feasible proposal to EP and Council • Will it be possible to propose a copyright exception for research, for both non-commercial and commercial research? TDM and copyright policy developments are a major issue for DG RTD and European research • Best working conditions needed: impact on H2020 & all R&I in the EU • Developments should not jeopardize the global move towards Open Science and EC policy to develop it
  4. 4. When and what? European Commission • Digital Single Market (DSM White Paper for June Euro Council) • Public consultation, hearings (E.g. Commissioner Oettinger)... • Clear priority / No fixed deadline / No paper on table yet European Parliament • MEP Reda Rapporteur (JURI) – vote on 16 April 2015 CULT/MEP Adinolfi, IMCO/MEP Stihler Vote in Plenary on 20 May 2015 • WG on IPR and Copyright Reform: exchanges of view • EP Research Service
