Global research Commons: Europe and beyond

20 Mar 2023

RDA and EOSC Future are pleased to collaborate on a half-day satellite event in conjunction with the RDA 20th Plenary Meeting

 “Building blocks of Global Research Commons: Europe and beyond”

20 March 2023, 11:00-16:15 UTC, Gothenburg, Sweden 

About the event: Implementing research commons at disciplinary, regional or national level is a common issue across the globe. The challenges are diverse and have to take into account many policy, governance or technical focused complexities. This event will focus on the issues related to practical implementation of research commons. The opening session will be a collaboration with members of the RDA's Global Open Research Commons WG, and a high-level panel discuss diverse global perspectives in approaches to implementation, and will examine several themes and challenges in assembling the main features of such research commons, including the researcher perspective. The second part of the event will focus on how to implement these challenges from the bottom-up, showcasing examples of how RDA’s diverse data community are tackling challenges, with specific examples from the EOSC Future Open Calls. Topics will cover practical aspects of implementation such as Interoperability, Discoverability and Community Engagement. The event is jointly organised by RDA and the EOSC Future project.

Key take-aways from the event: Attendees will come away with a deeper understanding of the different types of global research commons, their  priorities,examples of roadmaps and frameworks to tackle the challenges as well as an understanding of research community needs. The audience will learn from others about different approaches and examples of implementation with the ultimate goal of supporting global coordination and alignment for such research commons. 

This event will be of interest to:  International audiences involved in implementing research commons at disciplinary,regional or national levels, funders, data experts, technical managers, and other implementorin general those implementing research commons.
