A big idea whose time has come?

Ongoing themes

The ongoing themes that the Groningen Declaration Network seeks to address were first enumerated in the declaration itself. This does not mean that there can be no other ongoing themes - the network is eager to adapt itself to new challenges as they come along.

That being said, the ongoing themes as formulated so far are as follows:

  • Acceptance of digital data in lieu of paper documents;
  • Access;
  • Attributes;
  • Authentication;
  • Compatibility;
  • Comparability;
  • Data consulting;
  • Forwarding/sharing;
  • Identification;
  • Interoperability;
  • Ownership of data sets;
  • Privacy rights;
  • Recognition
  • Sharing of best practices
  • Co-ordination of policies on the above
