Network governance and data management.

The purpose of this WG will be to develop the rationale, strategy and standards for collaboration, as well as the structure and model for the network governance. Standard operating and data processing procedures and data storage and data management based on evaluation and development will be implemented, including data version controls, software use and updates and quality flagging. Quality assurance, required protocols, best practice for network management and strategic development will be formulated and applied. A training school will be organised towards the end of the Action.
