Data Resources in the Life Sciences - London Workshop

A second meeting was held in June 2017 concerning issues relating to the sustainability of key data resources for the life sciences and biomedical research.

A planning meeting was held at the Wellcome Trust, June 5-6 2017, involving 35 attendees who discussed issues relating to the sustainability of key data resources for the life sciences and biomedical research.

This was a follow-up meeting to a workshop held at the HFSPO in Strasbourg in November 2016 and the discussion focussed on developing a broad plan towards gaining the support of research funders around the world to support the core resources that are used by scientists globally.

The participants developed the principles for such support and proposed the preparation for a high-level plan towards achieving global support.
