As an RDA Europe Early Career grantee, it was a special honor to participate in the 14th plenary meeting in Helsinki and enter the world of RDA. After the Japan Open Science Summit earlier this year, this was only my second conference. Being quite new in the business, it was exciting to go to P14, since I was not sure what to expect. Now, two weeks after the plenary, I can say that it was one of my best decisions to apply for the grant and go to Helsinki.

Highlights from the RDA Europe Ambassador Dr. Ana Slavec

In October I spent a week in Finland, where I attended the 14th RDA plenary and some of the co-located events as the RDA Europe Ambassador for Engineering/Renewable materials.
During the course of my master’s degree in Information Science, I got involved in the TAIL research project which gave me the opportunity to contribute to the development of research data management tools and to start my research career. I have joined the RDM community in 2016 and, from that moment on, RDA was one of the places where I could find many answers to my questions related to the RDM activities.
Selected as a grantee for the RDA Europe 4.0 programme for Experts I participated in the RDA 14th Plenary Meeting in Helsinki in October 2019, my first visit to a RDA Plenary meeting, and I was hugely impressed, by the engagement and enthusiasm among delegates, and by the well-organized meeting.
