Our survey on Open Access & Open Data implementation business models is still open

9 October 2020

We kindly invite you to take part in our new survey and help us identify the business models associated with Open Access & Open Data implementation.

This survey is part of a broader research conducted within the frame of the “BE OPEN” Horizon 2020 project, and it will be pivotal in developing a business model compatible with the guidelines and aspirations of the European forum and observatory for open science in transport. The data provided by the survey and its conclusions will not only provide a better understanding of the different business models that organisations in transport research follow, but it will indicate potential opportunities on how to conduct further research into business models involving open Access and how to incorporate those results effectively. To succeed on this task, it is important to deepen our understanding of how the businesses operate but also how they compare to existing classifications of business models using open Access data. In order to gain such analytic insights, we chose to develop a survey based on the existing literature exploring business models with a special focus on business models involving open Access. This short survey targets at research organisations and association in the Transport sector.

The survey is composed of 31 easy-to-answer questions and shouldn't take more than 10 minutes to fill and submit. The survey is open until  Friday 16th October (extended deadline).

You can access the survey via the following link: survey (Google forms).
