I attended International Data forum (15.09.2016) and 8th plenary meeting of Research Data Alliance (RDA; 16.-17.09.2016) which were organized as part of International Data Week in Denver, USA. I would like to first thank RDA-EU for providing the early career award.

During The International Data Forum day and the RDA 8th plenary, I took the opportunity to learn from different approaches on data management and check out how different communities can contribute to develop a more open science.
I can truly say that my experience as a RDA US Data Share Fellow has been life-changing! I applied for the fellowship during my first year as an Assistant Professor in the School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University, Bloomington. The program’s stated commitment to early career development attracted me to it. I knew that I would need to take advantage of every possible opportunity for early career development because the demands of tenure at a research intensive university are tough; mentoring, networking, and collaboration are critical.
