U.S. NATIONAL COMMITTEE FOR CODATA22

The U.S. National Committee (USNC) for CODATA23 provides a bridge between the scientific and technical community in the United States and the international CODATA on data issues. The USNC operates within the National Research Council’s Board on International Scientific Organizations and is the principal organizational entity within that Board’s Office of International Scientific and Technical Information Programs.

The USNC undertakes special studies and activities, counsels the U.S. National Delegate to CODATA on the U.S. position regarding official CODATA business, and provides a link between U.S. and international data compilation and evaluation activities, taking into account the needs of the scientific and technical user community.

Finally, the USNC works closely with the international CODATA on permanent access to scientific and technical data. It is a co-organizer of the aforementioned series of workshops relating to permanent access to scientific and technical data, including this one.
