EOSC & RDA Synergies and Complementarities Webinar

25 Mar 2021

How is the Research Data Alliance (RDA) supporting the establishment of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC)? Community engagement, researchers´ incentives and the RDA Working Groups (WGs) are three areas that will be discussed in the webinar. And how Finland can play a role? Join the webinar to know more.

The EOSC Finnish Forum is organising a webinar on EOSC & RDA synergies and complementarities on the 25th of March 2021 from 11 am to 13:30 pm EET (09:00 - 11:30 UTC). This webinar is particularly targeted to the Finnish community, however participants from all countries are welcome to join.


The webinar aims at discussing the role of the Research Data Alliance initiative (RDA) in the EOSC context with a special focus on the role that RDA can play as organisational and disciplinary engagement enabler for EOSC. Researchers´ incentives and rewards is another topic that will be addressed in the webinar with views from the RDA community and from the Federation of Finnish Learned Societies that is coordinating an EOSC co-creation project tackling the FAIR assessment of data infrastructures. Finally, the webinar will dive into the RDA/EOSC activities performed at national level setting the scene for the final panel discussing the RDA & EOSC synergies and complementarities.
