GHG-Europe Data Policy

The GHG-Europe Data Policy addresses issues related to the provision, exchange, availability, maintenance, use and publication of data and products produced by the GHG-Europe research activities or acquired from third parties as a support to this research.


The purpose of the GHG-Europe Data Policy is to set up fundamental principles in view of:

  • easing collaboration among the participants of the GHG-Europe project
  • ensuring timely submission of quality-checked, consistent data and products for the use within the consortium
  • protecting the researchers’ Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) and rights to publish their results
  • providing rules for the use of the data within the consortium and by third parties
  • building a homogeneous body of valuable scientific information on GHG fluxes over European ecosystems
  • providing the broader scientific community with an easy access to the above integrated knowledge during and beyond the lifetime of GHG-Europe.


GHG-Europe encourages the Partners to endorse the Open Database License (PDbL; Open Data Commons 2010 ) with its social and professional norms for acknowledgement and putting derived works in the public domain.
