Proposed Implementation, Collaboration and Engagement Content

The call for proposals requires applicants to respond to three specific areas of focus for the new Digital Research Infrastructure (DRI) organization: implementation, collaboration and engagement, and governance and management.  The steering group would like to thank everyone who provided comments on the governance options and would now like to invite comments on the implementation, collaboration and engagement content.  The proposed executive summary is provided for information as it is will not be assessed as part of the proposal.
