High-level Gap Areas:

Estimated the value and benefits to Australia of making publicly-funded research data freely available; examined the role and contribution of data repositories and associated infrastructure; explored the policy settings required to optimize research data sharing, and thereby increase the return on public investment in research
Used and modified Solow-Swan model and extrapolated from results of other studies, primarily in the UK, to estimate the implied value of increased access to Australian public research data
