Best Practices for Data Management & Sharing

Date: 
04/14/2014 - 08:00 to 04/15/2014 - 18:00
Location: 
EU JRC, Ispra, Italy
Description: 

The workshop is divided in two parts: one, which is reserved for your presentations on your experiences in data management and sharing; and one, which is reserved to identify key issues on data management/sharing and how to address these in particular from the JRC point of view, and further to discuss interoperability between data repositories and e-infrastructures. This part will also introduce data sharing policy and data management at the JRC.

For the discussion on key issues on data management and sharing, we would in particular like to get input on the following questions:

Data sharing policies (Why and How)

  • Impact & benefits
  • Principles & methodologies (criteria for selecting data to be shared, possible barriers to data access and use, etc.)

Data management (Why and How)

  • Impact & benefits
  • Underlying requirements (legal, organisational, etc.)
  • Principles & methodologies (data preservation and versioning, provenance and lineage, persistent identifiers and their granularity, etc.)
  • Standards & technologies used (cross-domain interoperability, etc.)
