The starting point of the workshop is the report ‘Riding the Wave’. This report provides a picture of the future for an electronic infrastructure that allows sustainable access and (re-)use of scientific data. The workshop looks at which part of this vision has already been completed, what challenges may come into play for the scientific community and what the implications of this vision are for the role of scientific archives.

The workshop will take place on January 20, 2014 from 13:00 to 16:30 at NWO, Java Building, Room 300 in The Hague.
