Consortia Partnership Program Guidelines

The DataCite Consortia Partnership Program is designed to establish a collaborative network of Consortium Leads committed to advancing the adoption of DataCite services and infrastructure, as well as to promote best practices around leading a DataCite Consortium. 

This partnership initiative is aligned with DataCite’s mission to promote best practices and foster the adoption and benefits of DataCite’s services within different communities. As part of DataCite’s broader mission, the program seeks to facilitate knowledge sharing, strengthen consortium partnerships, and empower the community. 

The DataCite Consortia Partnership Program plays an important role by connecting experts and newcomers and by establishing a framework for the exchange of knowledge and resources relevant to their activities and duties as a Consortia Lead.
