Belmont-Forum: Data Policy and Principles

Das Belmont-Forum (“To deliver knowledge needed for action to avoid and adapt to detrimental environmental change including extreme hazardous events”) hat bei seinem Treffen in Oslo im letzten Herbst dieses Dokument “Data Policy and Principles” verabschiedet.
Darin heißt es:

“The Belmont Forum’s ambition is that this policy and these principles will take positive steps toward establishing a global, interoperable e-infrastructure based on cost-effective solutions that can help enable actionable and societally beneficial science.
Data should be:
• Discoverable through catalogues and search engines
• Accessible as open data by default, and made available with minimum time delay
• Understandable in a way that allows researchers—including those outside the discipline of origin—to use them
• Manageable and protected from loss for future use in sustainable, trustworthy repositories”

Im Vorfeld war ein Report erstellt worden:
A Place to Stand: e-Infrastructures and Data Management for Global Change Research.
Dieser Bericht illustriert die oben genannten Forderungen und zeigt auf was die nächsten Schritte sein müssen.

“An e-infrastructure that supports data-intensive, multi-disciplinary research is needed to facilitate new discoveries and accelerate the pace of science to address 21st century global change challenges. Data discovery, access, sharing and interoperability collectively form core elements of an emerging shared vision of e-infrastructure for scientific discovery. These elements further depend on building relationships among data
sets, people, systems, organizations and networks.”

“A New Data Literacy for the 21st Century: The United Nations noted that the world needs a new data literacy that enables actionable and socially-beneficial science to address environmental change affecting disaster mitigation, resilience, water and other natural resources.”

Das Belmont-Forum wird von deutscher Seite von BMBF und DFG unterstützt.
