RDA Europe, the European plug-in to the Research Data Alliance, has recently established a network of national nodes to foster adoption of RDA outputs in the region, and thereby enable interoperability and data sharing on a global scale. This is the first in a series of three calls for proposals to become a new RDA Europe node. Further calls will be published in early and late 2019. Funding will be assigned via a cascading grants mechanism.
An initial group of European organisations have been funded as RDA nodes to support improved effective national research systems, with the final aim of fostering an open European labour market for researchers, thus facilitating mobility, supporting training and ensuring attractive careers.
RDA is now seeking candidates for its annual TAB election, to be held in September 2016.Terms are for three (3) years. We encourage participation from people in all stages of their careers. Nominations will be accepted until August 15, 2016.
From September 11-17, 2016, data professionals and researchers from all disciplines and from across the globe will convene in Denver, Colorado for International Data Week (IDW). The theme of this landmark event is ‘From Big Data to Open Data: Mobilizing the Data Revolution’.
