"Professor David De Roure is one of the members of a government Task Force which aims to lead and coordinate roadmap for national open research data infrastructure.
Professor Adam Tickell, Chair of the UK Open Access Co-ordination Group, produced a report on open access to research which was requested by the Minister for Universities, Science and Research and Innovation, Jo Johnson, in 2015.
In the report a recommendation was made that a 'roadmap' for national open research data infrastructure be produced, with a set of recommendations. In order to lead and coordinate this work the Minister established the Open Research Data Task Force.
Universities UK says, 'Open research data is the next key phase in the UK's open science ambitions... The UK is a world leader in research data, following policies from UK research funders and engagement in support of research data management within UK universities, as well as long established specialised data centres. The academic community has played an important role in developing the research data landscape, particularly with the development of the Open Research Data Concordat, which for the first time has united the sector around key principles'."
