IAI Institutes 2008
Institute on Information Management: free and open access to, and use of data and information. 25th-29th February, 2008, Panama City, Panama
The IAI has supported a wide range of multinational and multidisciplinary research and capacity building activities to contribute to the understanding of global change processes and to use this understanding in the adaptation to and mitigation of global change impacts. The Free and Open Exchange of Information is an important part of the IAI’s mandate. This involves a number of conditions and processes: the scientific data and information must be of reliably high quality; the information must be accessible across disciplines, institutions and countries; it must be in formats that facilitate access, analysis and meta-analysis; it must be accompanied by tools that facilitate the generation of knowledge, communication and visualization from data and information; and it must be governed by secure and reliable protocols of storage, access, use and distribution.
IAI has carried out the first institute on data and information management in Panama City, Panama, that was held by The Water Center for the Humid Tropics of Latin America and the Caribbean (CATHALAC
). For IAI is urgent to support research project teams in issues relevant to information management and data exchange. One aim of the institute was to expand international and interdisciplinary scientific interactions through improved information management. This activity was funded by the US National Science Foundation (NSF).
The principal goals of the institute where therefore: 1) to provide recommendations to help IAI develop its data and information policy as part of its IAI strategic planning
; and 2) to encourage IAI supported projects (CRN II, SGP-HD) to make data available and expand international and interdisciplinary scientific interactions through improved information management
. Besides these goals, the institute aims to promote discussion on institutional and policy aspects of information sharing, management and access; foster scientific and technical discussions on information analysis and meta-analysis to inform decision makers and policy; Identify opportunities and constraints for open access, data storage and preservation of data, as well as share information, access practices and policies; show existing data consortia and identify how they are dealing with this matter and who are their target audience and users; and Identify mechanisms to synthesize data for policy through a meta analysis process.
