The Science Europe Working Group on Research Data and the Knowledge Exchange Research Data expert group
joined forces to explore how RDM/RDI are currently, or could be, funded.
In 2014 and 2015, surveys were conducted to explore the funding and costing of Research Data Infrastructures in 22 European countries, contrasting the very heterogeneous findings with the demands of service providers and research institutions. The data collected will form the basis of further independent KE and Science Europe activities in this area, to help raise awareness of the current challenges, and subsequently to communicate opportunities for coordinated action to relevant stakeholders.
This briefing paper presents the results of the joint activity, detailing the approach and main outcomes of the study.
