CODATA together with GO FAIR, RDA, and WDS (the four major international
data organisations), are pleased to outline their joint commitment to work
together to optimise the global research data ecosystem and to identify the
opportunities and needs that will trigger federated infrastructures to
service the new reality of data-driven science.

A first concrete example of this is the following ‘*Data Together COVID-19
Appeal and Actions*

The COVID-19 pandemic presents a major test for our science system and for
our research and data infrastructures.  These infrastructures, such as open
science clouds and data commons, must serve the needs of science, policy,
and humanity not only in ‘normal times’, but also in times of crisis by
providing controlled access to quality data in real-time and at scale for a
range of scientific- and policy-related responses.

The Data Together organisations are jointly working on the following
activities and invite all to contribute:

   1. Data Together–GO FAIR Virus Outbreak Data Network
   <https://www.go-fair.org/implementation-networks/overview/vodan/> (VODAN)
   2. The Data Together–RDA COVID-19 Working Group
   3. CODATA ‘Making Data Work for Cross-Domain Grand Challenges’
   <https://codata.org/initiatives/strategic-programme/decadal-programme/> for
   launch in 2021
