Research data is the new currency of the digital age. From sonnets to statistics, and genes to geodata, the amount of material being created and stored is growing exponentially. However, the LERU Roadmap for Research Data identifies a serious gap in the level of preparation amongst research performing organisations.
This gulf is prominent in areas such as policy development, awareness of current issues, skills development, training, costs, community building, governance, disciplinary/legal/terminological and geographical differences.
In order to help with these issues, LEARN has prepared an Executive Briefing aimed at helping decision and policy makers to identify sound solutions. It is available in six languages: English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish.
