RDA Virtual Plenary 17
Please note that the early-bird registration for this event is only available until Friday 2 April 2021 - https://www.rd-alliance.org/rdas-17th-plenary-meeting-registration
This event is hosted by the Digital Curation Centre in collaboration with Jisc and UKRI and will focus on the themes of global challenges, global mechanisms for data reuse, sustainable solutions with benefits for all, and global cooperation to realise these ends.
RDA plenaries are focussed on progressing the work of its Interest and Working Groups and on providing opportunities for new communities of interest to examine the potential for new group formation through Birds of a Feather sessions. Plenary presentations set the larger scene for RDA's work, give an insight into how group outputs are being adopted and used in research, and update members on the work of the organisation as a whole.
The final version of the programme is now available at https://www.rd-alliance.org/rdas-17th-plenary-meeting-programme. Highlights include:
Opening and closing plenary sessions from the following speakers:
* Prof Richard Gold of McGill University discussing "Open Science and Drug Discovery: Removing Barriers to Accelerate Research"
* Dr Gregurick NIH Associate Director for Data Science discussing "Building a Robust FAIR Biomedical Data Ecosystem"
