5th October 2016News, Open Access, Open Science

The European Commission (EC) is taking important steps to support the Digital Single Market in Europe through its recently published proposal for a Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market, published on 14 September 2016.

SPARC Europe welcomes these. Strong copyright legislation will facilitate the production and dissemination of new content. It thereby has the potential to boost the visibility and reputation of Europe as a strong research leader.
