The Vision and Requirements - Legal, Financial, Governance

Presenter 1

UK Data Archive

The principle outcomes of the achievement of these objectives will be the establishment of CESSDA as a legally constructed entity, membership of which will mark organisations as quality assured centres of expertise in the preservation, management and dissemination of research resources. Also, the undertaking will position CESSDA as the first choice for the deposit of data by both national and pan-European bodies, for example Eurostat and DG Research.

In line with the recently published NSF (National Science Foundation) report on cyberinfrastructures, the broad vision of the CESSDA RI upgrade can be stated as wishing to develop ‘a system of …. data collections that is open, extensible, and evolvable; and to support development of a new generation of tools and services for data discovery, integration, visualization, analysis and preservation…[consisting of]…. a range of data collections and managing organizations, networked together in a flexible technical architecture using standard, open protocols and interfaces, and designed to contribute to the emerging global information commons.’
