Relationship between infrastructure, protocols, standards

Research protocols and information standards have much in common, and both are essential components of research infrastructure. Protocols outline the process for a specific experiment or research project, while standards provide technical best practices for processes across the whole information ecosystem.  In this session, representatives from a publisher, a protocols platform, and an infrastructure organization will discuss their perspectives on the relationships between each — what's working, what isn't, and what more is needed?
