Submit your comments on the RCUK draft concordat on open research data by 21 September

The UK Research Councils, Jisc, the Wellcome Trust and Universities UK have published a draft concordat on open data which is currently open for comment.

The concordat aims "to help to ensure that the research data gathered and generated by members of the UK research community is made openly available for use by others wherever possible in a manner consistent with relevant legal, ethical and regulatory frameworks and norms".

The University is drafting a response. Please send your comments to researchdata@leeds.ac.uk by Monday 21 September 2015.
