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.
