The objective of this workshop is to debate and discuss the future of Research Data Infrastructures, in light of the GRDI2020 roadmap preliminary findings and recommendations and the next EC Framework programme - HORIZON 2020, as well as RDI initiatives on a global level. The first version of the GRDI2020 roadmap was published in January 2011 and its main purpose is to:
– launch some new ideas
– address mainly data challenges and a limited number of system, application, and organization challenges
The workshop will see presentations from global representatives (Africa, Asia, Australia, Canada, Latin America, US) on their policy for Research Data Infrastructures, as well as representatives from other global initiatives (e-IRG, ESFRI, ICSU, ...), organisations (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, FAO, Istituto di Scienza e Tecnologie dell’Informazione, Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia, Microsoft Research, Oxford e-Research Centre) and initiatives covering new challenges in the next framework Programme for which Research Data Infrastructures are imperative.
