The Long Tail of Research Data Interest Group met at Plenary 4 to compare institutional experiences in the management of research datasets of varying sizes that arise from research across various disciplines, and which are not currently curated and preserved by subject-specific datacentres. We also heard about a UK-EU authored report on incentives for sharing research data.

I am a PhD student in Information and Computer Science Engineering at the University of Pisa and I work as research fellow for the National Research Council (CNR) always in Pisa. As one of the winners of the Early Career Support Programmes, in this post I would like to share my experience and impressions of the 4th RDA Plenary Meeting held in Amsterdam.
Hi researchers, my name is Fabio Benedetti, a Phd. student of the International Doctorate School in Information and Communication Technologies of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, and I am writing this post to share my experience at the Fourth RDA Plenary Meeting in Amsterdam as one of the winners of the Early Career Support Programmes.
Luckily the RDA Plenary in Amsterdam was already my second chance to attend such a meeting after the March Plenary in Dublin. Therefore I was already quite familiar with all the terms and structures which are part of RDA and which can be overwhelming at first sight.
I am a digital archivist working at the Digital Repository of Ireland, the organisation which co-hosted RDA Plenary 3 in Dublin with Insight and the Australian National Data Service in March 2014. As RDA3 was in my home town it was easy for me to attend; and in September I was lucky enough to be awarded an Early Career Researcher bursary to attend RDA4 in Amsterdam.
