Facilities and data infrastructure

Organising facilities and data infrastructure is an important challenge. What issues are involved?

  • How can we work towards a federated landscape of facilities and data infrastructure that supports FAIR data for the customers in the universities, the UMCs and other research institutions?
  • What data infrastructures and facilities are currently available?
  • What can they be used for and how do they respond to the (most important) requirements? They should be applicable to future-oriented research data management in all phases of the research data life cycle.
  • What requirements and good practices can we formulate together for infrastructure and associated (federated) services?
  • How can we set up the services landscape based on existing elements so that every researcher in the Netherlands has FAIR data available (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Re-usable)?
