The IDA Use Policy is updated in accordance with a document prepared after a dedicated workshop, taking into account the comments provided by the Fairdata network. The service Use Policy and related processes will be further developed as part of the Fairdata network activities.
The main updates:
- Terminology and links have been clarified and updated.
- Terminology added
- The possibility of applying for (and extending) IDA use right based on funding from the Academy of Finland or based on a direct allocation by the Ministry of Education and Culture (Minedu) has been removed to make the policy more straightforward. Existing projects that use IDA under these use rights will be primarily transferred to use IDA based on their organization affiliation. The projects that are affected by this change will be contacted by CSC during 2021. This change doesn’t require actions from users before this.
- Instructions for increasing the organisation’s IDA quota have been added to the document (previously appendix) and updated with regard to the processing of applications. CSC processes applications from organisations on behalf of the service owner Minedu.
