Research Data Thought Leader Meeting

Date: October 1, 2008

Location: Baltimore, MD

Facilitator: Maureen C. Kelly

Topic Committee: Business Information

A final report from this meeting is available.

This is a rapidly growing issue not only in government agencies such as NASA, NOAA, and NIH, but also in the biotechnology industry and in the academic environment, where struggles to establish standards for storing and sharing data continue to hinder collaboration and reuse of existing data sets without large investments of time and money. A gathering of key stakeholders from a broad cross-section of government, corporate, and academic organizations will ensure collaborative solutions to mutual problems and might even be able to generate funding from various corporate bodies if the topics discussed are oriented toward their needs.
