DG-RTD surveys on the European research data landscape

The European Commission's Directorate-General for Research and Innovation (DG RTD) has commissioned a study on the European research data landscape. This is being conducted by Visionary Analytics in partnership with EFIS, DCC, and DANS. The study aims to provide a detailed characterisation of the research data ecosystem in the European context and will provide valuable information to develop more targeted policies and implement actions to mainstream FAIR and open data practices in Europe. Important to note: this is a one-time survey on where and what with respect to data, so not a yearly measurement on top of all the monitoring taking place already.

There are two surveys, one aimed at researchers and the others at research data repositories. Details can be found at the links below:
