IG RDM in Engineering - Online seminar series - “Exploring annotation and metadata initiatives for engineering data”

06 Jul 2020



The IG RDM in Engineering is organizing an online seminar series to activate the work of its focus groups ‘Data annotation’ and ‘Metadata’ established at the 14th RDA Plenary. The aim of this online seminar series is to explore initiatives, projects and applications already existing or under development that could be applied or adapted to research data found in engineering disciplines. 


The online seminars also aim at exploring together with the engineering research communities what are the challenges to be solved and how the IG RDM in Engineering can work together with them and other RDA IGs to solve them by creating relevant Working groups (WGs).


The online seminars will take place in July, September and October and they will be announced progressively on the Events page of the IG: https://rd-alliance.org/node/61116/events
