ANDS Travel support for Australian participation to the RDA 8th Plenary

Invitation to Australian participants to apply for partial travel support from ANDS to attend Research Data Alliance Plenary 8

Research Data Alliance Plenary 8 will take place in Denver, Colorado, USA, from 15-17 September 2016, as part of International Data Week (IDW, 11-17 September 2016). The theme of IDW is ‘From Big Data to Open Data: Mobilizing the Data Revolution’. Organized by the Research Data Alliance, (RDA), CODATA, the Committee on Data of the International Council of Science (ICSU) and the ICSU World Data System, IDW comprises three complementary events: SciDataCon 2016-Advancing the Frontiers of Data in Research, an International Data Forum, and the 8th RDA Plenary Meeting.

To increase Australian engagement with the Research Data Alliance, the Australian National Data Service (ANDS) would like to offer a contribution of AU$2,000 towards the travel costs for people in Australia who are currently involved in RDA and plan to make an active contribution at Plenary 8.

To apply for the travel contribution, please respond to the following questions by emailing Jenny.Bone[at]ands.org.au by COB Monday 18 July 2016:

  • What is your current involvement in Research Data Alliance activities?
  • How are you planning to be actively involved in Plenary 8?
  • What benefits do you expect for Australia from attending the Research Data Alliance Plenary?

If you are successful, you will be advised by COB Monday 25 July 2016.

Please contact Andrew.Treloar[at]ands.org.au if you have any questions.
