NFDI Neuroscience is committed to organize and sustain cross-community research data management (RDM) in neuroscience by bringing together researchers and technology providers to develop processes for data management with specific emphasis on neuroscience. The third workshop of the consortium focused on services for RDM in Neuroscience, both from the service provider’s and the user’s perspective. Service providers were given the opportunity to illustrate and comment on their perception of provider-user cooperations and to discuss with the research community the community needs and how they can contribute to address them and close the gaps.

The workshop allowed a very fruitful discussion on several topics such as data heterogeneity and interoperability, data standardization and sustainability, data exchange and storage and adherence to legal requirements. The workshop laid the basis of an invaluable exchange between users and providers.
