Deliverable D3.2 “Guidelines for Interoperability”, prepared on the basis of available information at the time of writing, is the output of CReATIVE-B tasks T3.3 and T3.4, which aims to “Prepare guidelines for interoperability (for biodiversity and ecosystem research infrastructures)”. It provides a resume of the conclusions about the status and achievability of interoperability existing between the surveyed e-Infrastructures. It highlights the currently known obstacles and makes suggestions for overcoming these. Using a typical use-case drawn from contemporary work on Essential Biodiversity Variables (EBV) the document defines some typical scenarios of interoperability that can be supported by several or all e-Infrastructures. The use-case is mapped to the most likely scenario but further work is required at each of 3 levels of interoperability (applications, service logic, resources) to illustrate how each research infrastructure may support the use case. Building on Deliverable D3.1, on the existing similarities and differences between participating research infrastructures, Deliverable D3.2 aims at presenting a set of guidelines for overcoming obstacles to interoperability. It advises on a roadmap for medium-term (5-7 years) convergence towards worldwide technical interoperability of biodiversity and ecosystem research infrastructures. Thus, it forms a solid knowledge basis for recommendations on resolution of interoperability in the medium to long-term (deliverable D3.3).
