European Commission Vice-President for the Digital Agenda Neelie Kroes recently emphasised that “data is the currency of modern science”. Extending the metaphor of “data as currency” with the concept of “data objects as money”, then trusted data repositories can be considered as “banks” and thus guardians of the “currency”. This requires the existence of solid agreements that bind all actors involved in these “currency” transactions to guarantee a trustworthy environment for exchange. In such a context, trusted relations between the various actors must be established and context-sensitive trust measures need to be put in place which are indispensable for the global market of knowledge exchange.
