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 (, 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.
