Webinar objectives are to:
Bring greater awareness of open data and data management requirements, as well as explain why data sharing is important to funders
Share funders’ and other organizations’ open data policies
Generate discussions that address the challenges of meeting open data requirements
Set the stage for cooperation among researchers, universities, funders, journals, and research associations which later will eventually develop policy alignment
