With the new FY2012 NSF budget thrust, Cyberinfrastructure for the 21st century (CIF21), NSF places significant emphasis on computational and data-rich science and engineering, with the goal of providing a sustainable, community-based and open cyberinfrastructure for researchers and learners. This is a major challenge because the number and volume of data sets have grown to proportions well beyond the range of applicability of traditional data handling tools. Transformative approaches and innovative technologies are needed for heterogeneous data to be integrated, made interoperable, explored and re-purposed by researchers in disparate fields and for myriad uses across institutional, disciplinary, spatial and temporal boundaries.

Recd 2: Universities and research institutes should play a major role in supporting an open data culture by: recognising data communication by their researchers as an important criterion for career progression and reward; developing a data strategy and their own capacity to curate their own knowledge resources and support the data needs of researchers; having open data as a default position, and only withholding access when it is optimal for realising a return on public investment.
Recd 3: Assessment of university research should reward the development of open data on the same scale as journal articles and other publications, and should include measures that reward collaborative ways of working.http://royalsociety.org/policy/projects ... se/report/
