NIST has released a preliminary draft of its work on a Research Data Framework. This is important, as it will establish a set of best practices and an analytic framework for work in this area, and I would urge those interested in research data management to have a look at this work. See
Bob Hanisch of NIST (and a long time leader in thinking about research data management who I have had the privilege of working with in a number of settings) will be giving a talk on this work at the CNI virtual Fall 2020 Member Meeting on Friday, November 20, 2020. We’ll make video of this publicly available after the presentation.
