ReCreating Europe project partners will be extensively involved in the upcoming European Policy for Intellectual Property (EPIP) Conference 2021 taking place from the 8th – 10th of September 2021 in Madrid, Spain. Read more about the EPIP Conference here. Below you’ll find a list of presentations to be held by ReCreating partners at the event:
- ReCreating Europe’s Giulia Priora and Caterina Sganga will present the following paper at the EPIP Conference 2021: Betwixt EU and national: the present and future of copyright flexibilities (paper submission #156)
- Thomas Margoni and Martin Kretschmer will also present the following paper based on their work in WP3 at the EPIP Conference 2021: A deeper look into the EU Text and Data Mining exceptions: Harmonisation, data ownership, and the future of technology.
- In a joint WP3 and WP6 initiative, Thomas Margoni, João Quintais, and Sebastian Schwemer will organise the following themed session at the EPIP Conference 2021: Algorithmic propagation: do property rights in data increase bias in content moderation?
New Survey – ‘Study on Copyright Law and Academic Work’
In the weeks to come, researchers from 6 European countries within the ReCreating Europe network will receive an invitation to take part in a survey on the topic of ‘Copyright Law and Academics’. The aim is to collect large-scale data on academics’ copyright law knowledge, experience, and perceptions in conducting their work. By responding to the ReCreating Europe survey, you will make a very valuable contribution to the project’s empirical work and possibly help propose better empirically informed policy recommendations. This research is part of ReCreating Europe (https://www.recreating.eu/), funded under the European Commission Horizon 2020 Programme, and is being run by the Institute of economics at Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna and led by Arianna Martinelli.
