The (re)-use of data, also in fishery and marine sciences, need data sharing policies and legal aspects in addition to technological interoperability. FAO, amongst others, has prepared data sharing and legal interoperability policies in Virtual Research Environments. In EGI Engage this experience will be used to develop a market analysis. This activity will be completed by M12. The objective of this presentation is to reach out to other communities with similar policy requirements, and to share some practical advice on data policies: 1) What are policy and legal barriers for data sharing (with a focus on fishery & marine sciences), and why do we care; 2) How to provide legally relevant instructions to data providers to describe their data, access to data, over the entire life-cycle of data in an infrastructure; 3) How can an infrastructure provide support to processing a mix of public and non-public data-sets results in improved data availability whilst respecting legal dissemination boundaries; 4) Present a use case with a regional database targeting fisheries’ productivity;
