e-IRG Data Management Task Force Report
The e-IRG delegates recognised the importance of data management for the future of research infrastructures and, as a result, established the e-IRG Data Management Task Force (DMTF) that received recognition and support also from ESFRI. The main objectives of DMTF were defined as producing an analysis of issues regarding data management in a coherent and flexible way, and a set of recommendations for the present and future research infrastructures. The report is divided into three parts: a survey of existing data management initiatives, metadata and quality, and interoperability issues in data management.

Task Force on Sustainable e-Infrastructures
The overall vision of this document:
"The linking of individual computers into increasingly complex networks has been
transforming the scientific enterprise for several decades. Networking has affected every aspect of research, including data gathering, sharing of large databases, brute-force computing, modelling and simulation, and publishing of preprints and papers."
