RDA/CODATA Materials Data, Infrastructure & Interoperability IG

IG

Group details

IG Established
 

Status: Recognised & Endorsed

The development of advanced materials inherently rests on access to a distributed materials infrastructure and materials research data to fuel discovery and innovation.  RDA aims to accelerate and facilitate research data sharing and exchange. Similarly, CODATA works to strengthen international science for the benefit of society by promoting improved scientific and technical data management and use.  Given these complementary missions, this RDA IG and the CODATA TG will work together under the following statement in support of the exchange of material data.  

The success of the scientific endeavor rests on the foundation of free and open exchange of ideas and supporting data.   We believe this kind of exchange with computational and experimental materials data through shared online repositories, standardized formats and terminologies and open programming interfaces is essential to accelerating the discovery, design, and development of advanced materials.  Making this data widely and freely available, as a "public good", creates increased opportunities for conducting fundamental research while facilitating potential commercial development activity of data-based services, tools, and applications.  It therefore follows that it is in the scientific and economic interest of all countries to operate under this framework of free and open data exchange to the greatest extent possible, in such cases where it does not infringe on intellectual property  or national security.

Dear Gerhard,

All is well and it is very good to know that you will participate at the RDA P11. Below is a draft agenda that it is hoped will encourage full discussions. It is also anticipated that a draft of the Final Report will be available on the MRR WG site the week before the meeting.

Best wishes & see you soon,

Laura
