New deliverable on main challenges and opportunities, constraints and bottlenecks of OS in transport research
The main objective of the deliverable D5.1: Main challenges and opportunities, constraints and bottlenecks of Open Science in transport research is to identify the challenges, opportunities and barriers of Open Science in transport research.
On that purpose a two-step methodology was developed:
- A targeted review of literature findings was conducted in order to identify the challenges, opportunities, constraints and bottlenecks of Open Science in transport research at European, national and institutional level.
- Based on the results of literature review, a Delphi survey on the challenges, opportunities and barriers of Open Science in the transport sector was also conducted among a panel of transport experts.
The deliverable concludes that the global transport research and industry are at the forefront of embracing Open Science and the provision of open data and services, a need which is also accelerated by the rapid developments in transport sector. The availability of open transport data delivers net benefits to:
- both transport research community and researchers, by improving data access and promoting the development of new ideas and research results and
- to transport organisations/companies and the customers, by enabling a more efficient operation suitably adjusted to customers' needs and ensuring transparency.
Under these circumstances, transport research should be proactive and support the principles of openness overcoming the barriers.
