Commitment of funding to remove barriers. • Dataset development and release in accordance with nationally established data-schemas, establishment of schemes where they don’t currently exist. • Funding will be allocated amongst partners (subject to the agreement of the detailed spending plan). Priority will be given to activities that unlock datasets most in demand and needed by the local community, in a sustainable way. Spending will be in accordance with the overall aims and objectives of the fund.
