There is growing consensus that open access to research data benefits science and society. However, institutions, including universities, research associations, libraries and funders, face various challenges in making open access possible. High on the agenda of many of these institutions are the following : evaluating and maintaining the quality and trustworthiness of data ; training and developing the skills of researchers and other relevant stakeholders ; advocating the value of open access ; and securing funding. These issues have implications for institutional processes and require some level of institutional response.

The aim of this workshop is to develop a set of policy recommendations that provide support for institutions involved in making open access to research data possible. During the workshop we will present and discuss the findings of our research on the institutional policies and practices regarding data quality management, training, advocacy and financing.

The workshop takes place ahead of the LIBER 43rd Annual Conference Research Libraries in the 2020 Information Landscape (
