e-IRG Task Force Report on Legal Issues published

The report investigates the legal barriers of using e-Infrastructures in Europe.

Between December 2012 and May 2013 a Task Force of the e-Infrastructure Reflection Group (e-IRG) considered the legal and regulatory issues likely to arise from the increasing use of state-funded e-Infrastructures by non-state funded researchers and organisations. Such use, on a national and international scale, appears essential to achieve the Horizon 2020 goals for a European Digital Research Area.

The Task Force report on Legal Issues formed part of the e-IRG White Paper 2013 (long version).   This document contains the text of the report and, as annexes, the individual working papers that were developed as input to the final report.
Concerns have been expressed that legal and regulatory barriers may hinder wider uses of e-Infrastructures. The paper reports the conclusions of an investigation of relevant areas of European law to determine whether they do, or could in future, create such barriers.
Six areas of law and regulation have been identified as relevant to use of state-funded e-Infrastructures by non-state-funded parties: state aid law, public procurement law, network regulation, data protection, terms of use of e-Infrastructure providers, and software licences.
