  25. 25. Gaps? Opportunities??1. Define core components of data informatics • Metadata (discovery, preservation) • Domain ontologies • Visualisation e.g. VisTrails • Workflow e.g. Taverna • Analysis e.g. RLyon, Informatics Transform, IJDC 2012
  26. 26. Gaps? Opportunities??1. Analyse LIS entry qualifications & increase STEM entrants Target • Biologists • Chemists • Mathematicians Lyon, Informatics Transform, IJDC 2012
  27. 27. Gaps? Opportunities??1. International Data Informatics Working Group to explore promotion, recognition & reward • Global awareness campaign • Career incentives • Benchmark good practice Lyon, Informatics Transform, IJDC 2012
