A questionnaire from the Research Data Architectures in Research Institutions IG

Dear Open Questionnaire for Research Data Sharing Survey IG co-chairs,
I attended the Questionnaire IG at Gaborone and was interested by the proposed work of the group, finally getting around to joining today. We've been putting together a questionnaire of our own in the RDARI IG that we would like to launch in early 2019 if possible. The idea behind our survey is to:
* Compare policies and practicalities between institutions
* Understand the state of the art when it comes to institutional architectures to support research data management
