Development of FAIR data services and Research Data Management policies critically depends on knowledge of local research data management practices. The move from generic (basic) RDM services to more focused services is predicated upon understanding the local context: What kinds of data are collected and how? How are data processed, analysed, archived or otherwise stored? What sorts of regulations (institutional or otherwise) do researchers have to obey? This process is recorded in the development strategy.
