Science globally is being transformed by new digital technologies. At the same time addressing the major global challenges of the age requires the analysis of vast quantities of heterogeneous data from multiple sources. In response, many countries, regions, and scientific domains have developed Research Infrastructures to assist with the management, stewardship, and analysis. These developments have been stimulated by Open Science policies and practices, both those developed by funders and those that have emerged from communities. This conference provides a significant opportunity to survey and examine these developments from a global perspective. CODATA 2019 is around the theme “Towards Next-Generation Data-Driven Science”.
