    Dear colleague,
    I am writing to you because I think you may be interested in this session at the RDA Plenary in Tokyo.
    An RDA-WDS Group, of which Ingrid Dillo, Anita de Waard and I have been co-chairs, has looked at Income Streams for Data Repositories and I am now coordinating an OECD Global Science Forum project that builds directly on this work.
    Information about the session at RDA P7 in Tokyo and our final report is available at
    The OECD Global Science Forum project will run for 15 months or so from April 2016 and will extend the survey of repositories. We will hold two workshops, one to look at innovative income streams and options for cost restraint, the other to test more thoroughly with stakeholders, willingness to pay (for what and how) and the viability of various business models for different levels of curation, data services etc. The output will be positive and concrete OECD policy recommendations for business models that will promote sustainable data infrastructures.
    I attach some further information and I hope – if this is of interest – to see you at the session on Thursday 3rd March – 09:00 – 10:30 – Working Meeting Session 6.
    With very best wishes,
