Robust and effective data management is increasingly important as the world becomes more dependent on data optimization and use to maximize its benefits for society. CODATA, an international organization that develops policy recommendations to enhance data sharing and reuse, promotes improved scientific and technical data management and good practices – exploring frontiers in data science, and advancing data education and training skills. Together with IIASA, CODATA supports mission of the International Science Council to advance science as a global public good, by promoting Open Science and FAIR data principles. This session will bring together stakeholders in the area of Big Data, FAIR Data and Open Data to reflect on the current state of data management in modern world realities, lessons learnt and the challenges we face going forward.
