The ODE project has published a collection of success stories and lessons learned in the area of data sharing, re-use and preservation.
Ten stories have been selected from a series of interviewed carried out to establish a baseline for the drivers and barriers in data exchange.
From institutions such as the UK Data Archive, CERN and Galaxy Zoo, these stories reveal the opportunities presented by data exchange as well as surrounding issues such as funding, infrastructures, discoverability, culture, and collaboration.
The case studies illustrate the state of play in a dynamic area and are intended to encourage stakeholders to embrace the opportunities presented by data exhange.
The Opportunities for Data Exchange (ODE) project is partially funded under the EU FP7 e-Infrastructure programme and is is gathering evidence to support and promote data sharing, re-use and preservation
