The first CREATe public lecture of 2019/2020 will be given by Catherine Stihler, CEO of the Open Knowledge Foundation. She was a Member of the European Parliament from 1999 to 2019. As an MEP, her roles included Vice-Chair of the Internal Market Committee, and Rapporteur for Article 13 of the Copyright in the Digital Single Market (DSM) Directive (now Article 17).

For further information about the DSM Directive, including two of Catherine Stihler’s speeches, see CREATe’s resource page at: https://www.create.ac.uk/policy-responses/eu-copyright-reform/#statements

Chair: Prof. Martin Kretschmer (CREATe)

The public lecture will be preceded by the launch of CREATe/PEC Digital Resources (Bartolomeo Meletti) 17:15-17:30

Within the AHRC Creative Industries Policy & Evidence Centre (PEC), CREATe is developing digital and open data tools that consolidate and synthesise existing evidence relating to the effects of IP rights on creative production and consumption, changes in business models, and the emerging data economy (including platform and content regulation). The public lecture will be preceded by the launch of the beta version of the following digital resources: i) OMeBa, an innovative data tool enabling insights into online media behaviour; and ii) The Copyright Evidence Portal, an authoritative and accessible gateway to all available evidence in the field of copyright, including empirical studies and sources of data.
