    The purpose of the RDA CCM Interest Group is
    - to collect, validate and publish a range of data-centric capability profiles;
    - to enhance inter- and intra-domain interoperability;
    - to catalyse RDA data-sharing goals.

    UKOLN Informatics and Microsoft Research Connections have developed a Community Capability Model
    Framework (CCMF) based on the principles described in The Fourth Paradigm. The aim was to create a common framework for describing how different communities are placed to effectively carry out data-intensive research, as well as identify gaps in capability.

    The CCMF White Paper describes various aspects, which together facilitate an assessment of the
    data-intensive capability of a particular community; they are categorised into Human, Environmental and Technical elements, encompassing the following eight factors:
    Legal, Ethical & Commercial;
    Economic & Business;
    Skills & Training;
    Common Practices;
    Research Culture;
    Technical Infrastructure.

    The CCM Interest Group will lead on progressing the application of the model across a range of disciplines to make it usable and provide a picture of how different communities are tackling data-intensive research.
