Launch of the Research Data Alliance/Stockholm

Neelie Kroes, Vice-President of the European Commission responsible for the Digital Agenda

18 March 2013

I am very happy to be with you today, here in the EU, to launch the global Research Data Alliance.

Scientists have always sought new ways to share. And they've always been in the vanguard using new technologies to help them do that better.

Scientists developed the internet, for example. Its forerunner, the Computer Science Network of the eighties, was funded by the National Science Foundation; then scientists at CERN developed the worldwide web. Now it's everywhere: available to scientists and laymen, the greatest tool for sharing information ever invented.
