As a way of raising awareness and stimulating thinking about the potential for new uses of research data and information, the US National Academy of Sciences Board on Research Data and Information, has issued an open challenge for exemplary projects. The announcement is below:

The National Academy of Sciences Board on Research Data and Information (BRDI; www.nas.edu/brdi) announces an open challenge to increase awareness of current issues and opportunities in research data and information. These issues include, but are not limited to, accessibility, integration, searchability, reuse, sustainability, perceived versus real value and reproducibility. A Letter of Intent is requested by December 1, 2013 and the deadline for final entries is May 15, 2014.
