The European Commission has published a report with a summary analysis of the consultation concerning the Green Paper on a Common Strategic Framework.

According to this document, the current IP rules are considered by many respondents as “adequate”. However, many highlight the need to support an appropriate dissemination and use of the results. In particular, the responses analysed show in this context that “there is support for open access approaches, where the free dissemination of publicly funded research results is the rule, although the difficulty in striking a good balance between IPR protection and openness is generally acknowledged.”
