Research intensive universities in Australia have been working together to articulate the nature of a sustainable and effective research data culture, under the banner of the Research Data Culture Conversation (RDCC).
In the RDCC process, the complexities of university hosted research data have been canvassed in a conversation between those building best practice solutions today, those who look to adopt best practice solutions and those that can facilitate changes in research practice.
The goal is a movement towards metadata-driven and machine-actioned management practices that capture the context of data sufficiently well to support most life-cycle decisions to be made about those data. To this end, a Smart Decision Making (RDMP-2.0 based) process is envisaged, whereby research data management would transition from the current fixed plan based (waterfall) approach to a continuous improvement-based approach.
