CODATA is committed to active partnership on data issues.  Partner organisations are key allies in our mission, and are encouraged by our Constitution on the following basis:

“An entity not covered by the other membership categories may be considered for special membership by the Executive Committee. Its affiliation shall be defined by a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) prepared by the Executive Committee. At a minimum, liaisons shall be appointed from each organisation to the other and the MOU shall be reviewed at a minimum every four years.” (CODATA Constitution, 3.1.e)
