25 unis are participating in a project to create a national approach to research data management
The Australian Research Data Commons is managing the project and providing $65 000 to each participating institution.
It’s a “Yin and Yang” the ARDC suggests.
“Data is an asset that underlies and validates the findings of their researchers and feeds into new research, motivating the preservation, sharing and re-use of data. However, data also poses a challenge in terms of the growing burden of resourcing, the management of access and sensitivity, and the need to make decisions about longer-term retention and disposal.”
