What if you only had one account for accessing all of the information resources you needed anywhere in Europe?
In cooperation with TERENA, the University of Amsterdam and the University of Debrecen, LIBER is conducting a study which will explore the conditions for the implementation of a single European access and authentication infrastructure (AAI) for research information, or put more simply a “researcher passport” that will allow European researchers to access all the research resources they need with one credential.
This study comes directly on foot of the Riding the Wave report, in particular the recommendation to create a directive to set up a unified authentication and authorization system in order that researchers from any discipline can find, access and process the data they need. Within the context of our study, these data encompass not just primary scientific data, but all data that a researcher needs to conduct research (e.g. articles).
The survey will be closed on Friday 16th.
