Original Project Description: DataNet Federation Consortium Vision and Rationale
A new approach is needed to assure that the data generated today are available and useful tomorrow for the next generation of researchers. Long-term sustainability mechanisms are needed that deal with technological obsolescence and discipline and societal changes. The DataNet Federation Consortium (DFC) provides a new approach for implementing data management infrastructure that transcends technology, social networks, space, and time through federation-based sustainability models.
