Noon Talk “Research Data licensing”

Research data is a precious good. Where is the balance between protecting it and opening it? How can you manage the way it is reused by others? In this Noon Talk, the topic of data licensing will be presented from various points of view. After a brief introduction on current practices by the Library, three speakers will share their experience and point of view about research data licensing:
• Giovanni Pizzi, senior scientist at the Laboratory of theory and simulation of materials and project leader at NCCR Marvel
