Goal of the 2nd workshop is to design a strategy that allows the storage of data sets in a standardized way that supports an exchange of (meta) data between partner organizations. The alliance will meet for an in-depth exchange on future strategies in data management, technology transfer, practical implementation and exchange sessions. The initiative will continue to grow after the workshop through outreach of partners to their local research communities, comprising also non-ASEA-UNINET partners. Partners on the musicological side will seek connections to local partners with technical backgrounds to accommodate for their individual needs as well as gaining technical solutions that will be contributed to the alliance.
