Building policy compliant infrastructure for research data
Presentation at the NIH Hosted Workshop on Role of Generalist Repositories to Enhance Data Discoverability and Reuse Feb. 11-12 in Bethesda, Md.
The primary goals of the workshop were:
Hear from generalist repositories about how they see themselves in the larger biomedical data repository landscape.
Understand from institutional data repositories how they are creating suites of solutions for their researchers and how they see generalist repositories fitting in this landscape.
Consider desired characteristics of data repositories and how they relate to institutional expectations of data storage/preservation solutions.
Explore adoption of common infrastructure, standards and federated search solutions to enable greater discoverability of NIH research data across federated data repositories.
Address the role of data curators in ensuring that data and metadata are sufficiently well curated to enhance discovery and enable reuse.
