ELIXIR-CONVERGE: Connect and align ELIXIR Nodes to deliver sustainable FAIR life-science data management services (871075)


The goal of ELIXIR Converge WP5 is to assess the capacity of ELIXIR and its national nodes to assist users’ projects in implementing Data Management Plans (DMPs) in their projects at a EU scale. To do that, six demonstrator use-cases were created and they are described in the previous deliverable (D5.1 - 10.5281/zenodo.4674490 ). This deliverable includes a description of the main resources that can be used to assess researchers in the process of creating DMPs for at least two use-cases including a gap analysis. The DMPs are related to the demonstrator use-case #1 (Plant sciences) and #3 (Marine metagenomics). Moreover, specific aspects for use-cases #4 (Human data) and #6 (Biomolecular simulation) are also added. The main activities described in this deliverable are related to the ELIXIR Research Data Management Kit (RDMkit : https://rdmkit.elixir-europe.org/) and the Data StewardshipWizard (DSW : https://ds-wizard.org/) in connection with ELIXIR Converge WP3 activities. For all use-cases except use-case 5 (Toxicology data), a ‘Your domain’ page in the RDMkit has been assembled with the information necessary to consider when managing research data in their corresponding domains. Also, a ‘Tool assembly’ page in the RDMkit for the plant sciences, marine metagenomics and human data use-cases have been added. Finally, the DSW has been used to perform the initial description of the first DMPs including a gap analysis. Since ELIXIR Converge started, the work of WP5 has been centered in understanding the needs of the demonstrator use-cases to develop, if necessary, customized DMPs for each of them considering the domains they are part of. Also, once this characterization was done, several resources have been created to help users in the development of their DMPs. Indeed, these demonstrators are expected to serve as examples for researchers developing their own DMPs. The domain and tool assemblies pages added in the RDMkit are ready to use internally in ELIXIR after the beta-release in February, 2021. They provide a valuable resource for researchers and data stewards in the life sciences to help them in their data management processes. The Knowledge Models (KMs), the central component of the DSW, are under periodic revision to incorporate outcomes from ELIXIR Converge including specific aspects identified by the use-cases in order to complete their content and release an official version of them. The final objective is to provide refined DMP versions for the remaining 4 use-cases. This will allow us to cover a broad range of data-driven demonstrators, with its associated challenges, and assess how the general process scales up when applied to other communities served by ELIXIR. All these efforts will contribute to harden the work developed in other ELIXIR Converge WPs like the RDMkit and the DSW (WP3), the dedicated training materials and capacity building actions (WP2) as well as to provide reference information to the data management experts network (WP1) and external members to the project, e.g. Industry, in WP4.
