Prof. Dr. Thomas Margoni is Research Professor of Intellectual Property Law at the Faculty of Law and Criminology KU Leuven, and a member of the Board of Directors at the Centre for IT & IP Law (CiTiP). His research concentrates on the relationship between law, data and technology from a international, comparative and European copyright law perspective. In particular, he has been focusing on the changes in the creation, access, transformation, and distribution of information brought by the Internet and AI. Within this framework, Thomas has been working on Open Science (especially, Open Access, FAIR and Open Data, and Open Licenses) for two decades, as reflected in his publications and research projects (which can be consulted here: https://www.law.kuleuven.be/citip/en/managing-board/boards). Relevant in this area is his role as PI of the Legal WP of the Skills4EOSC project, a new Horizon Europe project starting in September 2022 which will focus on the development of (legal) skills for open science professionals.
