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.
Applications are invited for the position of Training and Engagement Manager as part of the Digital Repository of Ireland (DRI) team located at the Royal Irish Academy (RIA).
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.
Please join us this coming Tuesday, Nov 22 at 17:00 UTC, for the webinar titled “Integrating Research Data Management Services using maDMPs” hosted by the @RDA_US and presented by the RDA DMP Common Standards WG.
The Research Software Funders Forum requests feedback from the international scientific community to understand the needs of scientists in the areas of development and enhancement of research software and the associated ecosystems. This feedback will be used by the group to investigate the possibility of issuing a joint multilateral call to fund projects related to research software.
We are delighted to announce five new projects that are funded under the RDA Open Calls programme in the European EOSC Future project. The projects are European-based, and disciplinary focused, diverse in aims and goals, but all draw on the RDA outputs, and working on different aspects of data sharing and technical solutions for open data in their disciplines.
A bit of context
This webinar, presented by the RDA DMP Common Standards WG, will familiarize participants with the RDA recommendation on machine-actionable DMPs. Register here.
The FAIR principles refer frequently to metadata as a key enabler in discoverability but also have a major role in accessibility, interoperability, and reusability. Publishing structured metadata on the web can provide a simple and efficient means to increase the FAIRness of research resources: it exposes metadata contained in web pages through a formal mechanism, allowing systematic collection and processing by web-based crawlers.
The FAIR Principles call for the democratization of knowledge, inviting the global research community to implement practices that make their research data and results findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable.
In this webinar, the FAIR principles will be introduced by two experts with extensive experience in their implementation in research projects and in setting up academic repositories. In addition, the CARE Principles and the sovereignty of indigenous data will be introduced, as a specific branch of the FAIR principles.
