RDA Groups

You are here

RDA directly and logically tackles numerous data infrastructure challenges through the work of its Working Groups, Interest Groups and Communities of Practice.

What's the difference?

Working Groups (WG)

WGs are short-term (18 months) and come together to develop and implement data infrastructure, which could be tools, policy, practices and products that are adopted and used by projects, organizations, and communities. Embedded within these groups are individuals who will use the infrastructure and help in making it broadly available to the public. Any RDA member can join or initiate a WG.

Interest Groups (IG)

IGs are open-ended in terms of longevity.  They focus on solving a specific data sharing problem and identifying what kind of infrastructure needs to be built.  These groups identify specific pieces of work and can start up a WG to tackle those projects. Any RDA member can join or initiate an IG.

Communities of Practice (CoP)

CoPs investigate, discuss and provide knowledge and skills within a specific discipline and/or research domain. These groups are committed to directly or indirectly enabling data sharing, exchange and/or interoperability by serving as THE coordination focal point for RDA in specific disciplines/research domains.
