During the first year of GRDI2020 two Working Groups served as the framework for providing much needed contributions on critical technical and organisational aspects of future Research Data Infrastructures, such as interoperability, scalability, curation, and new forms of data access, or financial feasibility and incentives for user communities to contribute.
Each WG involved experts on relevant technological or organizational topics enabling the building of Data Infrastructures. The task of these experts was to identify a core set of crucial open problems for the development of DIs and suggest possible solutions. The main aim and outputs of the Working Groups can be thus summarised as follows:
Identify and advance understanding on critical organizational, policy and technical challenges related to the development of interoperating Global Research Data Infrastructures
Propose steps towards their solution
Develop reports and contribute to a roadmap towards interoperable Global Research Data Infrastructures
