Creating bridges to allow open, intelligent access to interopable data

Leveraging its vast network in the research and innovation field, and experience in the standards, policy, market engagement, and political aspects of technological implementation, Trust-IT coordinates or is involved in a series of research data infrastructure initiatives. For several initiatives, Trust-IT provides coordination, technical experience, communications, outreach, training, sustainability studies and digital strategies leadership to achieve their overall goals.
