RDA collaboration. The research data alliance1 has started a working group on practical policies2. This group is, according to the case statement3, aiming to “…focus on practical policy implementations through publication and 1 http://www.rd-alliance.org 2 http://forum.rd-alliance.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=24 3 http://forum.rd-alliance.org/download/file.php?id=43&sid=655ab93e02e2812b6bcb6f8460570343 assessment of policies that are used in production settings. A minimal set of policies will be selected by community consensus for formation of starter kits.” In order to fulfill these aims the working group is collecting policies used in production; this includes a description and the implementation. There appears to be a natural overlap between the aims of the working group and the work taking place in EUDAT task 7.1.2. The overlap between the working group and this task lies in the collection of policy descriptions and the associated implementations. However, we have to keep in mind the differences as well. The practical policy working group is only collecting policies used in production. This is not a requirement for the policies in this task, however in practice the policies collected here are often used in production already. Another difference is that the practical policy working group collects the policies to create starter kits or recommendations on best practices, while this task is aimed at collecting a wide range of different policies to test the performance and flexibility of our underlying infrastructure. EUDAT contributes to RDA and interactions have taken place and thus it has been agreed to exchange policy descriptions and implementations.
