Around the world research institutions and funding agencies realize valuable benefits in publishing and sharing research data. The aim of our data e-infrastructure is to support the development of CNRD case‐studies with appropriate means for storing and sharing research data. In the field of environmental information, data sharing seems to be particularly useful. Yet the actual implementation of data sharing mechanisms and principles is still in its infancy. The implementation of our network’s e-infrastructure is a major contribution of CNRD in this direction.
The storage of data is provided by the implementation of a web-based River Basin Information System software (RBIS). The different case‐studies and respective RBIS are available for partners in the CNRD web based Research Data Infrastructure (RDI).
