This joint meeting is about linking together the different activities within the RDA related to research data use in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMIC's). This meeting will cover
- Storage and analysis of development-related data.
- Improving the data infrastructure within LMIC's (e.g. data centres)
- Improving the capacity within LMIC's to capitalise on the fruits of the research data revolution.
The third item listed here would have clear overlap with the stated goal of the WG to create a set of Summer School in LMIC's. The second matches with that of the proposing IG and the first with that of the Data for development IG.
All group chair names:
Hugh Shanahan, Andrew Harrison, Simon Hodson, Ingvill C. Mochmann
