  • (a) how to better enable, encourage, and realize sharing of data, both across disciplinary divides and between “micro-silos” within research domains,
  • (b) how to acquire, manage, and curate metadata in order to ensure usability and comprehensibility of data over time and between disciplines, and
  • (c) how to enable data discovery, access, and analysis across distributed, public, and private data centers.
