Science 2.0 is a new approach to science that uses information-sharing and collaboration made possible by network technologies.
While the consultation was open to all citizens, organisations and public authorities, the Commission identified several groups that it would mainly target as respondents: universities and university associations, research performing organisations, research funding organisations, scientific libraries, academies, learned societies, scholarly publishers and intermediaries, and businesses in fields related to Science 2.0.
This consultation sought to gather the opinions of a broad sample of interested parties from across the EU research landscape. It aimed to better understand the potential impact of Science 2.0 and the desirability of policy action. This report presents the key findings, the main areas of discussion and the policy recommendations emerging from the consultation. The public consultation was held between July and September 2014 by the European Commission.
