Consultation on Research Data Infrastructures : Framework for Action - Données de la Recherche

Introduction

In preparation to H2020, the European Commission (DG CONNECT) has put together a Framework for Action addressing the area of Research Data e-Infrastructures.

The “Action Fiches” propose concrete domains of action. They aim at realising the European vision for a global interoperable data e-infrastructure supporting open, digital-driven, science (note that High Performance Computing and Distributed Computing as such are outside the scope of this consultation).

By means of a public consultation the European Commission would like to get reactions on strengths, coverage, gaps etc in order to improve and fine tune the framework for action. Period of consultation

The consultation will be on-line from 1 March until 27 March 2013. (...) - Données de la Recherche, par Thérèse Hameau, 15/03/2013

Three strikes and research is out

After 14 years in pharmaceutical discovery research, the first day of my new career in project management was disorienting. I was still at the company where I had been working as a researcher, but now my office was on the opposite side of the building. It had taken me a long time, and a lot of fits and starts, to get here. Between graduate school and two postdocs, I had spent nearly 12 years preparing for a career in pharmaceutical research, and I was reluctant to leave it. But after giving research three chances, I decided that it was time to explore a different path. Now, two-and-a-half years later, I don't regret my decision to leave the lab, and I am enjoying this second act of my career. (...) - Science, by Michael Orsini, 27 May 2016

Are we seeing a new ‘inequality paradigm’ in social science?

Are we seeing a new ‘inequality paradigm’ in social science? | Higher Education and academic research | Scoop.it

Social scientists have long been concerned with inequality, yet the focus has often been on its theoretical and political aspects. This is now starting to change, writes Mike Savage. Thanks to research interventions by scholars, together with attempts to institutionalise cross-disciplinary work, the focus is shifting from normative debates and towards the more technical, empirical and historical problems of inequality.(...) - Blog LSE 'Impact in Social Sciences', by Mike Savage, 2016/06/03

Observers are skeptical goal can be achieved.


In what European science chief Carlos Moedas calls a "life-changing" move, E.U. member states today agreed on an ambitious new open-access (OA) target. All scientific papers should be freely available by 2020, the Competitiveness Council—a gathering of ministers of science, innovation, trade, and industry—concluded after a 2-day meeting in Brussels. But some observers are warning that the goal will be difficult to achieve. (...) - Science, by Martin Enserink, May 27 2016

Les professeurs tirent la sonnette d'alarme au Venezuela : une colère qui n'est pas nouvelle mais qui semble s'accroître tant la crise économique frappe le corps professoral de plein fouet, comme par exemple dans les universités. Dans ce contexte, la Fédération des Associations de professeurs des universités du Venezuela a appelé les enseignants des facultés du pays à suspendre les cours ce mardi pendant 24 heures. Parmi les revendications notamment, dénoncer les difficiles conditions économiques des professeurs, et des salaires insuffisants.

NSF director unveils big ideas

France Córdova, the director of the National Science Foundation (NSF) in Arlington, Virginia, has unveiled a research agenda intended to both shape the agency's next few decades and win over the next U.S. president and Congress. The nine "big ideas" she presented last week to the National Science Board are meant to illustrate how increased support for the type of basic research that NSF funds can help answer pressing societal problems. They range from how humans interact with technology to how climate change in the polar regions will impact the global economy, environment, and culture. Córdova admits that it's unusual for a federal agency to talk publicly about its long-range budget plans. But she is betting that touting the agency's capabilities during an election year will pay dividends after voters have chosen a successor to President Barack Obama.  (....) - Science, by Jeffrey Mervis, 13 May 2016
