Currently the development of research infrastructures including e-Infrastructures is widely driven by direct demand or interests, rather than strategic planning. In the face of the upcoming effects of climate change and other grand challenges it is needed to have a more strategic approach to layout the European Research Area to be able to answer upcoming challenges. The use of data is central and crucial in this approach. The workshop session aims to provide a foresight discussion addressing the data aspect from different angles; the technical prospect, the funders perspective and the aspect of human centricity in all of that.
