Main Drivers for Successful Re-use of Research Data

Researcher perspectives and possible actions to improve successful re-use of data

23 September 2009 - 24 September 2009,  00:00 - 00:00,  Berlin, Germany

The main focus of the workshop was on the benefits, challenges and obstacles of re-using data from a researcher's perspective. Use cases from a variety of disciplines were supplemented by views from specialists from infrastructure institutions, publishers, and funding bodies on national and European level.

The workshop highligted technical challenges (e.g metadata exchange standards and quality assurance), but identified socially determined issues as the main challenge. These can be resolved if worked on cooperatively by researchers, institutions, publishers, funders and governments.
