We are excited to announce that the Data Curation Network will collaborate with Ithaka S+R on their recently awarded grant from the National Science Foundation to support the development of infrastructures for data sharing within data communities. The project will bring together scientists and information technology professionals for focused discussions about initiating and sustaining data communities.
From the press release:
“Leveraging Data Communities to Advance Open Science” will provide a forum for collaboration between IT professionals and scientific researchers. This will include a remote meeting pairing representatives from new or emerging data communities with IT professionals with relevant expertise and a final workshop at the University of Michigan in the spring of 2022. The remote meeting and workshop will provide opportunities for focused dialogue about how scientists and IT professionals can combine their expertise to foster robust data sharing within the scientific community.
Full details about the application process and eligibility will be provided in the official call for applications, which will be released later this summer!
