Research Data Alliance 8th Plenary Opening Plenary Session
15 September 2016, 09:00 – 10:30
Many public and private funders are hesitant to commit to funding resources in perpetuity, and ask for sustainability plans that could range from distributed community support, institutional commitments, or various sorts of fee-for-service business models. However, all too often the most difficult challenges are not in the sustainability model itself, but in a successful transition from the initial R&D phase that is conventionally fundable. This panel will explore various ways that research funders are trying to support transitions to sustainability, and open a conversation about how that might be more effectively achieved.
