With over 14000 individual members from 150+ countries, RDA provides a neutral space where its members can come together to develop and adopt infrastructure that promotes data-sharing and data-driven research
The interlinking and FAIRness of research information and data is - more than ever before - one of the most important challenges that must be tackled nowadays in order to make research truly innovative, efficient and transparent. Academies in Europe and around the world are traditionally places of excellence for top-level research. AGATE is a current research information system (CRIS) that aims to bring together information on their projects in a metadata platform to contribute to the FAIRness of their research.

Relevance / Link to RDA:
In its current phase AGATE contains data from the academies in the German language area and makes them reusable via an Open Search API. Data integration in the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) is one central future goal of AGATE. Since the platform is going to supply data to the EOSC as well as provide its content as Linked Open Data, exchange with the RDA community about those topics would be highly appreciated. AGATE and its cause could profit immensely from the RDA communities’ experience and networks.
