Mr Belov reported that there was activity earlier this year. There is a strategy with 3 scenarios: metadata exchange with direct link to data (at ODP level); pre-agreed list of data sets that should be available without registration on both sides. We asked SDN to set up a storage of these data; arrange a “circle of trust” so we encourage ODP users to register which then also allows them to obtain data from SDN. Now we have to talk to SDN how we can make the scenarios available, first of all through a document. SDN is interested in obtaining the ODP metadata. However there is no mentioning in SDN of this arrangement. So the visibility of ODP in SDN needs further discussions.
