The Generalist Repository Ecosystem Initiative (GREI): First Year Momentum Leads to Exciting Future Plans | Data Science at NIH

“During the first year of the Generalist Repository Ecosystem Initiative (GREI), the effort has made noteworthy progress in fostering collaboration across the NIH generalist repository landscape. The GREI team has delivered on not only technical capabilities but on community outreach and engagement with a training webinar series, a community workshop, and conference presentations.

The GREI program brings together seven generalist repository awardees (Dataverse(link is external), Dryad(link is external), Figshare(link is external), Mendeley Data(link is external), Open Science Framework(link is external), Vivli(link is external), and Zenodo(link is external)) to work together in a “coopetition” (competition and cooperation) model of collaboration to reduce the barriers to NIH data sharing, discovery, and reuse. The coopetition effort has organized into functional working groups focused on use cases, metadata and search, metrics, and community engagement with the goals of enhancing interoperability across generalist repositories(link is external) and supporting the data needs of research communities….”

Generalist Repository Ecosystem Initiative (GREI) Workshop | Data Science at NIH

“You are invited to join a 2-day virtual workshop presented by the seven generalist repositories participating in the Generalist Repository Ecosystem Initiative (GREI), sponsored by the NIH Office of Data Science Strategy. The workshop will focus on GREI’s vision of developing collaborative approaches for data management and sharing through inclusion of the generalist repositories in the NIH data ecosystem, and to better enable search and discovery of NIH-funded data in the generalist repositories. The workshop will feature keynote speakers and panel discussions with leaders in open data from the research community, NIH, and data community organizations. Interactive training sessions led by GREI repositories will present use-case-specific guidance on sharing and discovering data in generalist repositories. Presenters will also gather community feedback to inform future GREI work to enhance support for NIH data sharing with common functionality, interoperability, and “coopetition” among generalist repositories.”

GREI Collaborative Webinar Series on Data Sharing in Generalist Repositories | Data Science at NIH

“Join us for a series of presentations and panel discussions by generalist repositories to learn about available repository resources and best practices for sharing NIH-funded research.

Presented by the members of the NIH Generalist Repository Ecosystem Initiative (GREI): Dryad, Dataverse, Figshare, Mendeley Data, Open Science Framework, Vivli, and Zenodo….”

Meet the GREI Generalist Repositories

“Join us for a panel discussion with the 6 generalist repositories participating in the NIH Generalist Repository Ecosystem Initiative (GREI). Learn about common features and capabilities across repositories as well as repositories that support specific use cases. Discover how these repositories are working together to support NIH-funded researchers and participate in an audience Q&A.”
