The Panton Principles for Open Data in Science strongly encourage scientists and others to place scientific research data into the public domain using an appropriate license or legal tool. The Panton Fellows explore and support this concept. They endorse the Panton Principles for making scientific data open, and promote the value of open data in all areas of science.
The Fellowships focus on:
- Communicating and encouraging more stakeholders to adopt the Panton Principles
- Understanding and overcoming obstacles to opening up scientific data in different fields
- Identifying opportunities for opening up scientific data in new fields and engaging new stakeholders
They are targeted at graduate level and early career stage scientific researchers, part-time scientists, and people who are involved in scientific research policy.
