This deliverable documents the BlueBRIDGE data management strategy. This strategy will be developed by producing three successive versions of this deliverable: a preliminary version at M6, an intermediate version at M18, a final version at M27. This preliminary version contains an initial description of the data collected, processed or generated by the project, the standards and metadata used for them, and an initial plan on how sharing, archiving and preservation of this data will be guaranteed. Roughly 40 datasets have been identified and described. Some of these datasets are actually abstract / meta datasets, i.e. they represent a class of dataset that will manifest in a number of concrete datasets sharing certain needs and characteristics.
