ReCreating Europe: research on digital copyright law
With the coordinator (and the huge efforst of!) University Sant’ Anna in Pisa (and especially Caterina Sganga!) a consortium of wonderful colleagues from awesome universities has won a tender to do research on digital copyright matters.
The project is titled reCreating Europe – Rethinking digital copyright law for a culturally diverse, accessible, creative Europe. We aim to cover various timely questions related to digital copyright law. The project includes research on end users and access to culture, authors’ and performers’ protection, the role of creative industries, the preservation of cultural heritage, and intermediaries/platforms. From the University of Szeged, researchers of the Institute of Comparative Law and Legal Theory will be involved in the project, namely Péter Mezei and István Harkai. The members of the consortium – other than the University of Szeged – are the University of Sant’Anna in Pisa (the coordinator of the project), the University of Amsterdam, the University of Glasgow, the Alexander von Humboldt Institute, the Stichting Liber, the National University of Ireland Maynooth, the University of Tartu, the University of Trento and the University of Copenhagen. The synopsis of the project can be accessed via the attached document. The project will run for 3 years, starting on January 1, 2020.
We intend to publish various information (news, research materials etc.) on a constant basis – both here and via social media (mainly Twitter).
