The Legal Framework for e-Research involves mapping out a sophisticated legal framework for e-Research and collaborative innovation. As we transition into the National Collaborative-Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) era it is vitally important that social and legal aspects of the e-Research framework are developed in step with the rapid advances in technology. Only little work has been done in this area worldwide. This project will link with key international actors to provide an internationally significant project. While the Open Access to Knowledge (OAK) Law project aims to examine the role of open access to all in an Internet world, this project focuses on open innovation within secure knowledge communities – both are vital aspects of the e-Research framework. The critical issue is working out legal models for e-Research that reflect the capacity of the technologies involved and can be implemented quickly, effectively and (in many instances) in an automated way.
