    • Developing data management checklist
    • Considering data integration pilot projects
    • Need national coordinators
    • Need discipline-specific international coordinators
  • Archiving
    • A critical need
    • Particular issue with physical and biological samples (and transport)
    • Some new archives need to be created
    • Need increased awareness and action at the top levels of government.
  • Assessment
    • Identify the data--in progress but slow (not a technical problem) Goal: all metadata by Jun 2009
    • Serve the data--extremely variable, technical and social issues Goal: ongoing demos of integration all data available Mar 2010
    • Preserve the data--a major issue. Goal: all data in secure archives by Mar 2012
