‘Academic institutions have shown interest in making research data accessible; companies have offered to collaborate and provide infrastructure. Data owners have also indicated that they want to explore whether they can develop an AMdEX-based use case,” says Willem Koeman of Amsterdam Economic Board, one of the initiators, in Computable. He is delighted the launch of AMdEX has received a warm and eager welcome. Michiel Steltman at DINL applauds the start of AMdEX and calls it an element within a bigger challenge: trust in cloud computing in general.
