Luca Schirru, Postdoctoral Researcher in IT & IP Law

ELSI (Ethical, Legal and Social Issues) Meta WP will focus on Intellectual Property Rights (IPR), Public Sector Information (PSI), Open Data, licensing, database rights, integrity, responsible and participatory research and its impact on society. It will also address the balance between sharing research results under the principle “as open as possible, as closed as necessary” and the impact on involved communities and individuals and the legal aspects deriving from mandates and regulations, policies and legislative interventions at all levels. ELSI aspect will be considered in OS career profiles, QA and certification mechanisms, skillsets and learning materials. The task will create a knowledge base enabling the creation of user-tailored ELSI learning materials, to ensure the correct use of IPR & licensing and the FAIRness of training material and ethical and social aspects. Embedding the meta-WP across project activities reflects the need for partners with specific expertise to have a deep dialogue with the rest of the consortium, and results in the inclusion of ELSI tasks in WP 2, 3, 4 and 5.
