LIBER (2014), The Hague Declaration

The Hague Declaration aims to foster agreement about how to best enable access to facts, data and ideas for knowledge discovery in the Digital Age. By removing barriers to accessing and analysing the wealth of data produced by society, we can find answers to great challenges such as climate change, depleting natural resources and globalisation.

25 global experts from many different areas of specialisation -researchers, publishers, lawyers, lecturers- gathered in The Hague on 9-10 December 2014 to write the Hague Declaration. Their belief is that this Declaration will help shape ethical research practice, legislative reform and the development of open access policies and infrastructure.
