European Members of ICSU Release Statement on 'Open Data in Science in Europe'

European Members of the International Council for Science (ICSU) have released a statement based on the workshop 'Open Data in Science: Challenges and Opportunities for Europe' organized in partnership with the All European Academies in January 2018 in Brussels:

This workshop consulted 80 representatives from across Europe of science academies, research performers, funding bodies, international science organizations, and government agencies—including the WDS Chair and Executive Director—to make recommendations related to the FAIR Principles, data repositories, data skills, incentives and reward systems, Research Data Management, and research culture. 

We are particularly pleased that the statement endorses the work of the World Data System in building a community of Trustworthy Data Repositories.
