Data Summit in Paris
Co-organized by Sorbonne University, the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and University College London (UCL), this data summit is unprecedented in its scale: nine networks representing more than 160 of the main research-intensive universities in the world. The signing of the “Sorbonne Declaration” is an ambitious message to the international scientific community and to research funding bodies and governments. This framework document, intended to promote the sharing and proper use of data, calls on the public and private research communities to join this commitment. It also confronts governments and research funders with their responsibilities of providing universities with the financial means and the appropriate legal framework to open data.
