Over the past few months, the governance and product development of SHARE has shifted focus to an open source community partner model. Initial technical development focuses on SHARE as a local tool for research administration and building the open source ecosystem to support it. With this latter goal in mind, we are working on developing tools that lower the barrier to entry for collecting, aggregating, remediating, and linking metadata. Further, we are exploring decentralized technologies that will serve to distribute and expand contribution as well as allow for combining private data with that made available publicly in order to better support local use-cases. We will discuss and demonstrate these efforts, as well as discuss our current plans with respect to community-building and decentralized product development.
