Given the increased value of research data as a national research asset, many countries are
establishing national services to provide services, coordination and support for research data storage, processing, management, analysis, publication, reuse, sharing etc.
The peers for such national data services are other national data services, and this interest group is intended as a peer support forum to exchange ideas and share experiences.
What services do national data services offer?
How can national data services organise themselves?
By allowing national data services to learn from the experience of each other, the desired outcome is to increase efficiency for the individual operators of national data services and to promote a more coherent and joined-up community of practicioners.
The interest group aims to identify shared concerns and jointly address them through a variety of independent projects, collaborations, or working groups.
