The Belmont Forum, a group of the world’s major and emerging funders of global environmental change research, is committed to pursuing groundbreaking collaborative action to accelerate the delivery of environmental research.
The Belmont Forum held a meeting of principals in Oslo from 15-16 October. We are very pleased to report that the Belmont Forum has accepted the e-infrastructure Community Strategy and Implementation Plan. In addition, the group adopted a Data Principles and Policy based on the principles of open data outlined in the CSIP's first recommendation for the Belmont Forum.
A Place to Stand: e-Infrastructures and Data Management for Global Change Researchis now available. It consists of a set of recommendations on how the Belmont Forum can leverage existing resources and investments to foster a more coordinated, holistic, and sustainable approach to the funding and support of global environmental change research.
