2nd Forum topic

I would support this topic area for the meeting. It has been touched on by other events but needs more exposure. I would include under roles and responsibilities the question of where understanding and skills development should come from - whose role to provide/deliver.

We propose to hold the next meeting of the Research Data Management Forum in Birmingham, in November 2008. It has been suggested that the focus of the event should be upon roles and responsibilities, skills and expertise, with a particular examination of the skills and practice models that different groups bring to the table, both here and in an international setting.

Is this an area of interest or concern that you feel it would be advantageous to explore, or are there other issues that you consider it would be more useful and appropriate to address in the context of the Forum’s next meeting?
