Taking place from 23-25 October 2019, the 14th RDA Plenary will take place in Dipoli, the nature-immersed building of Aalto University, Helsinki, in Finland, “one of the happiest countries in the world”, states Per Öster, CSC-IT Center For Science Director and Co-Chair of the P14 Programme Committee.
Firsly, many thanks to those of you who attended the IG's breakout session at RDA's 13th Plenary Meeting. As new Co-chairs of the IG, we were really pleased with not only the turn out, but also how well the session went. We hope everyone there found it as interesting and informative as we did.
A review of the CoreTrustSeal is taking place in 2019 to define the Requirements for the period 2020–2023. This has no impact on the certifications of current CoreTrustSeal-certified repositories, which continue to run for three years from the date awarded.
Following our RDA Data Usage Metrics WG meeting in Botswana and two virtual calls since, we have put together a survey for repositories on data metrics implementations. If you are a repository provider, could you please fill out this survey?
Congratulations! Your session application - RDA/WDS IG Certification of
Digital Repositories: Build TRUST to be FAIR - emerging needs of
