This involves a review of Open Data requirements and related infrastructure, e.g. in terms of best practice guidelines, data repositories or data registration (persistent identifiers), as well as of resources to assist researchers in processing Open Data, such as the FOSTER Toolkit or the CESSDA Data Management Expert Guide.
