A strong and sustainable research infrastructure—the tools, services, and systems that support the research process—is vital. It speeds up the dissemination of research, helps ensure that it’s FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable, reusable), minimizes the risk of errors, and reduces the administrative burden on researchers and their organizations alike. How close are we to making this a reality? What improvements are needed? Who are—and will be—the key players? How much of the research infrastructure should be open, for whom, and why? This webinar will update you on the current state of the research infrastructure and take a look ahead to what needs to be done to ensure that it meets the future needs of all stakeholders across all disciplines and regions.
