Meeting title
A Digital Frontier of Global Science: Information Infrastructures Building Upon the Meaning of Data (Remote Access Instructions) 

Meeting room: Serondela 4

Collaborative session notes

Short introduction describing the activities and the scope of the group

OD2I IG explores data, information, and knowledge in research infrastructures. Key issues are the distinction between data and information, in particular observations and derivative information; the processes that evolve observational data into information, i.e. how data evolve to (are “cooked” to become) information along value chains involving data interpretation processes; as well as processes for acquiring and curating the derivative information back into research infrastructures as new assets that can be further exploited (published, processed, used, etc.). Our aim is to provide a platform for discussing and advancing this subject matter. Following the kick-off at P12 (Berlin), this meeting aims at further outreach within the RDA community.
