This collaborative workshop will explore different service delivery models that research institutions can adopt when supporting data management. These could apply to research information management systems (CRIS), data repositories, e-Lab notebooks and many other platforms.
Delivery models typically include open source software that is supported in-house, outsourced hosting of OSS, vendor-supported commercial services, and bespoke institutional services. Various partnership models supported by institutional groups, national consortia and NRENs will also be explored.
The workshop will be spread over one-week before the virtual RDA Plenary. Since the plenary is being hosted by colleagues in Costa Rica, the timezone has been chosen to suit American, European and Australian timezones. It will run at 20:00-22:00 UTC each day. Attendees can sign up for individual sessions.
