One of the activities designed to do that is the RDA EU Expert programme through which 6 European active contributors have been granted financial support. Our expert grantees are drivers behind a series of groups such as the Agrisemantics WG, the  Early Career and Engagement IG, Sharing Rewards and Credit (SHARC) IG or the Metadata IG. They will share  insights into their work via the RDA blogs, so make sure you stay tuned to https://rd-alliance.org/blog to find out more.
