Tudományos adatok megosztása - Kate Lance PhD beszámolója

Dr. Kate Lance osztotta meg az alábbi információt a GSDI L&SE bizottság levelező fórumában:

Presentations from Symposium on International Scientific Data Sharing
April 18-19, 2011
Washington DC
The Board of Research Data and Information (BRDI) at the U.S. National Academies co-sponsored a free, two-day symposium on international scientific data sharing, with focus on developing countries. The presentations from the event are available online.
The symposium sought to address the following questions:
1. Why is the international sharing of publicly funded scientific data important, especially for development? What are some examples of past successes and what are the types of global research and applications problems that can be addressed with more complete access to government data collections and government-funded data sources?
2. What is the status of public data access internationally, particularly in developing countries?
3. What are the principal barriers and limits to sharing public data across borders?
4. What are the rights and responsibilities of scientists and research organizations with regard to providing and getting access to publicly funded scientific data? How can international scientific organizations, government agencies, and scientists improve sharing of publicly funded data to address global challenges, particularly in less economically developed countries, more successfully?"

LAPSI projekt két kiemelt eseménye 2012 január végéig

A HUNAGI LAPSI Csapat tagjai figyelmébe! E heti postánkból: Cristiana Sappa LAPSI projektmenedzser írja:
1. Bocconi (and LAPSI website). As you may have already read in a previous message, the presentations of the Bocconi meeting are now available on the LAPSI website (header meetings).
Let me add that whenever you have a suggestion for the LAPSI website, you should not hesitate to share it, so that we can improve the website further.  2. Next meetings: London October 20th and 21st  -- Brussels January 2012. Thematic Seminar on Selected Deployment and Implementation Issues (with particular attention to the introduction/action of a regulator) and Internal Conference (submission of first policy recommendations of WG1 and WG5).
I have already started to plan these meetings with Prodromos Tziavos (City University of London - host). However, any suggestion is welcome from the WGs of reference and from the LAPSI partners/Advisory Board Members. The program will circulate on this mailing list as soon as it will be drafted. And it will be uploaded on the website as soon as it will be approved by the WG4, the Coordinator, and the Project Officer.
After that meeting we will meet in 
Brussels on January 2012 for the second LAPSI public conference. The idea is that during that conference each operational WG will present at least one policy recommendation which will be discussed by experts. I have already started to plan this with Cristina Dossantos (CRID). Considered the efforts required in organizing a public conference, should anyone wish to be involved in it, feel free to inform me at your earliest convenience. 
3. WGs. 
The forthcoming meetings will give the chance to submit to the plenary in October and to a broader public in January policy recommendations of several WGs. In particular WG1 and WG5 will submit some policy recommendations in London. The other WGs will submit their policy recommendations in Brussels.  More details will be provided by the WG leaders on the dedicated mailing lists. .....

Mint már ismeretes, a HUNAGI LAPSI Csapat közreműködésével 2012 márciusában Budapesten kerül sor a LAPSI projekt tematikus műhelyére liszenc kérdéskörben. Érdeklődők már most írjanak a hunagi@hunagi.hu címre HUNAGI LAPSI műhely tárgymegjelöléssel, hogy rákerüljenek a meghívandók címjegyzékére.

PSIshare - LAPSI körlevél Ton Zijlstra gondolataival

Dr. Frederico Morando LAPSI projektszakértő továbbította Ton Zijlstra alábbi levelét:
"I have worked my way through the slides and notes of the SharePSI workshop in the past days. In total just under a hundred barriers were identified, and over 640 solutions/drivers/interventions to surmount those barriers.
That list of barriers and solutions I've then tried to map and cluster, to see what patterns emerge. Those patterns have formed the basis for the discussion summary that is now finished in draft and which I just sent to the EC, Margot and Thomas for feedback.
Clusters in barriers that I see:
  • Access to data
  • Getting from access to reuse to viable business models (the innovation path, transition path for reusers)
  • Transition of government
  • Cost of transition
  • Disrupting existing markets and existing government revenue models
  • Linked and federated data as step to maturity
  • Licensing
  • Privacy
When it comes to suggestions and tried solutions to surmount those barriers you see they cover those same barrier clusters (not surprising, as most barriers were mentioned in the context of also mentioning ways of overcoming them)
What also stands out is that "it must come from the top, the middle, and the bottom" is visible in the suggested solutions, but also several other axis of action:
- small to large scale efforts
- short term, medium term, long term actions and aims
- facilitating the transition, vs creating the 'new normal'
and as mentioned
- top, middle, bottom
On all those axis, at each point along the scale, actions/solutions are mentioned. Together we as stakeholders are taking it all on, and all in parallel. Doing things here and now, but with the horizon in mind, you could say. Also because smaller, nearer things help build the case for larger, longer things. "Nobody knows what this is about yet" sums it all up quite nicely (and I mean that in a positive way)
With the summary written (you can see and comment it here https://daa.co-ment.com/text/GXXnDNBIU68/view/ ), I am now building a few images to show all the remarks as they form the clusters.
I've finished two maps of the first few clusters of barriers, will continue to build more images.
Please find attached
- a spreadsheet with all remarks I took from the notes and slides
- an image that maps out the mentioned barriers connected to the transition process and the cost of transition.
- an image that maps out the mentioned barriers from getting access to data to building viable business on it (the innovation path for reusers)
I would appreciate any feedback whether these maps are interesting to you or not.

Elérhetőek a milánói LAPSI Konferencia előadásanyagai

Cristiana Sappa projektmenedzser írja:
This is to inform you that the presentations of the LAPSI meeting held in Bocconi on May 5th and 6th are now available on our website:
We are already start planning the next public conference which will be held in Brussels on January 27th and 28th 2012. We hope to see many of you there. " A soron következő nyílt konferencián reményeink szerint magyar előadás is elhangozhat a PSI Irányelvvel kapcsolatos jogszabályalkotási eredményekről a HUNAGI LAPSI Csapat tagja dr. Csiszér Gábor (NFM) részéről. 

About the LAPSI project

LAPSI is a project in the FP7 program of the European Union.
Legal Aspects of the Public Sector Information and Re-use.
Timespan: 30 months. Participants: 20 institutions and organistions. Coordinator: University of Torino.
Kick-off Meeting: Torino, 26-28 March, 2010

Role of HUNAGI in the LAPSI Project

HUNAGI contribution is related mainly to the Geographic Information which are produced, maintained and used in land management, including surveying, mapping, cadastre and land registration, remote sensing and serviced by relevant spatial data infrastructures. From a national economic point of view, the uniform land registration system operating in Hungary is one of the most important databases of the country. This system allows to obtain over the time updated legal and geometric data, as well as other information (e.g. on ownership, land uses, mortgages, etc.). The cadastral maps integrated into the uniform land registration system show spatial relations and references of rights, facts and other information appearing on the property sheets, serving as a basis of engineering planning for the national economy. The national spatial data infrastructure can be built on this uniform, authorized and public land registration system, in small partial modules, following the EU INSPIRE Directive. HUNAGI will participate to all Working Groups and actively take part to Working Groups 01, 03 and 04. It also makes its facilities available to host one of the thematic network seminars or conferences.
