  • 1. Global Biodata Coalition


This consultation paper explores ways in which research funders could work cooperatively to enhance implementation of open data policies and advance their shared commitment to maximise the value of research data. This paper was developed based on the discussions and inputs of a Global Biodata Coalition (GBC) Working Group comprised of expert representatives of our member funders.  The GBC is running a consultation process to gather feedback and inputs from our stakeholders and communities on the ideas and options set out in this consultation paper from 2 October to 4 December 2023.  To find out more about the Working Group and feedback your views, please go to
