Preserving and promoting access to data from biomedical research accelerates scientific discovery and improves health outcomes. In order to plan for the disposition of these increasingly complex data sets, researchers and data archivists need to be able to accurately budget for the costs associated with long-term data curation.

Our recent report, Life Cycle Decisions for Biomedical Data: The Challenge of Forecasting Costs, examines approaches for forecasting costs for preserving, archiving, and promoting access to biomedical research data. This report provides a comprehensive conceptual framework for cost-effective decision making that encourages data accessibility and reuse for researchers, data managers, data scientists, and institutions that support platforms that enable biomedical research data preservation, discoverability, and use.

This webinar series will focus on approaches for research communities, funding organizations, and data storage providers. Discussions will focus on biomedical research but will be applicable to the broader scientific enterprise.

Join the National Academies for a webinar series on how to plan for life cycle data costs for researchers, funders, and storage providers.
