We are excited to introduce to you the RDA Europe Early Career and Expert grant winners joining the 13th RDA Plenary meeting in Philadelphia, US, this week of 2-4 April 2019.
This Data Management Plans (DMP) Community of Practice is targeted at people in Australia and the wider Oceania region who are interested in discussing, building and improving data management plans (DMPs) best practice and technical tools. Liz Stokes from the Australian Research Data Commons (ARDC) will initially co-ordinate the group. The first meeting for 2019 is on Tuesday, 9 Apr 2019, 14:00 - 15:00 AEST.
First RDA Output Adoption Webinar - Reproducible Health Research. 22 March. The RDA Working and Interest groups work hard to develop outputs that provide technical and social solutions to solve data sharing challenges globally. These outputs are of great value to a wide range of organisations and individuals that deal with research data. Not all stakeholders are aware of these valuable assets that the RDA community has to offer freely. A task force has been set-up to support the RDA community in promoting the uptake of its outputs globally and cross-domain. This recently formed Global RDA Adoption Team aims to widely promote the uptake of RDA outputs among stakeholders in all its regions and domains through training, improving the visibility of outputs, the sharing of adoption stories and stakeholder engagement at RDA plenary meetings. One line of action this team is working on is a series of webinars that aim to train stakeholders for adoption. The webinars will highlight outputs for adoption, ask adopters to tell their story and show the added value of RDA.
OpenAIRE, RDA Europe, FAIRsFAIR and EOSC-hub are happy to announce a series of three workshops, two in April and one in September, called ‘Services to Support FAIR Data’. The purpose of this workshop series is to explore how existing infrastructures can work together and understand how to deliver services that support the creation of FAIR research outputs.
The RDA Europe Industry Advisory Board (RDA IAB), conducted a series of interviews with private sector representatives. The interviews focused in four areas: the role of data in the companies’ activity, the recurring problems that the companies encounter in this scenario, the initiatives to solve these recurring problems, and the opportunities for academia and industry to collaborate in their mutual benefit. The conclusions of this survey are reported and explained.
In response to the ongoing conversations about our potential to do more and be more effective as "researchers and innovators openly share data across technologies, disciplines, and countries to address the grand challenges of society", we are trial-running the first RDA unconference at P13.
With the RDA 13th Plenary Meeting only five weeks away, we wanted to remind you of three very important deadlines:
