Determining the appropriate legal, financial, managerial, and governance arrangements for the international organization that will oversee the Dryad repository beginning in 2012, after consulting with JISC Legal, institutional representatives and other relevant experts, leading to formalization of these instruments. The work includes preparation of business documents for review by the Dryad Consortium Board; preparation of Memoranda of Understanding among institutional partners; transition planning; constitution of the expanded advisory and governance structure; and implementation of the plans for a mixed funding model (e.g. through subscriptions and submission of a bid to become an ELIXIR node).
