We met at the National e-Science Institute in Edinburgh on 15-19 March 2010 to develop our understanding of DIR. Approximately 100 participants (see Appendix A) worked together to develop their own understanding, and we are offering this report as the first step in communicating that to a wider community. We present this in turns of our developing/emerging understanding of "What is DIR?" and "Why it is important?'". We then review the status of the field, report what the workshop achieved and what remains as open questions.
