WG4: Materials Data Repository Priorities (suggested)

This idea has been suggested, but not yet organized. Interested parties are encouraged to take it on!

Repositories of materials data are fundamental to MGI efforts. Repositories arise to meet community needs to store and curate data with the central mission of providing valuable data to the broadest segment of researchers possible. Repositories face many challenges, some technical and some administrative. This WG is focused on streamlining understanding those challenges and providing shared technical solutions to those with a technical nature, such as developing standards and best practices for access and use of repository data. A central focus of the WG is development and adoption of practices to promote trust, confidence, sustainability, and federation for shared data resources. The WG will evaluate the CoreTrustSeal Data Repository requirements as a model for materials data repositories.  (
