In the WorldFAIR project, CODATA (the Committee on Data of the International Science Council), with the RDA (Research Data Alliance) Association as a major partner, is working with a set of eleven disciplinary and cross-disciplinary case studies to advance implementation of the FAIR principles and, in particular, to improve interoperability and reusability of digital research objects, including data.
The European Research Data Alliance Association (RDA-A) is happy to introduce a new support services project for RDA Working Groups, RDA TIGER (*). Coordinated by the RDA-A in Belgium, the project also includes contributions from CODATA, Netherlands eScienceCenter, and DANS.
For the RDA members, this new project provides many potential support services.
EOSC (The European Open Science Cloud) is a complicated beast. The vision to build an ecosystem of interoperable data and services, enabling cross-border, interdisciplinary and open research is beautiful in its simplicity. The reality of implementing this vision however is incredibly complex. At the EOSC Symposium 2021, a number of representatives of different communities shared their honest reflections, concerns and hopes for the EOSC with the intention to generate further discussion and community inputs to help us achieve the vision.
