Recognizing that the proliferation of digital research data has significant policy implications, the National Science Board Committee on Strategy and Budget established the Task Force on Data Policies to lead a broad examination on how research data collected with NSF funding are shared and managed to ensure broad, timely, and long-term availability to the research community. The recommendations in the resulting Data Policies Report reflect the Board's firm commitment to ensuring broad, timely, and sustained access to digital research data; addressing the cost burdens associated with managing digital research data; and developing a qualified workforce in data-enabled science and engineering.
