The digital change and the huge increase of volume and complexity of data will revolutionize science and industry.
To make sense of this evolving and complex landscape, and to make sure the work done has a high impact, RDA will continue to provide training opportunities.
RDA offers a series of training webinars, face-to-face workshops, hackathons/datathons partly organized as “summer schools” and special meetings on request. The topics will be primarily related with RDA recommendations and outputs, but it will also address general topics facilitating data sharing and re-use, interviews with notable people and information sessions such as reports from RDA plenaries.
In case that you are unable to attend a webinar: All webinars will be recorded, and the videos will be published shortly after the event. They are available in the Past Webinars section of this website.
Important: all times indicated in this list are in UTC time zone!

RDA Output Adoption Webinar Series: Outputs to Support Reproducible Health Research
22 Mar 2019 - 15:00
Anthony Juehne, Oya Beyan, Mark Musen, Leslie McIntosh
RDA Regions have specific mandates to encourage and monitor further uptake of RDA outputs, through promotion of the value of the outputs themselves and the value gained by adoption. An effective communication campaign is therefore fundamental to promote the RDA recommendations and outputs to groups and organisations within and outside RDA and further stimulate test, adoption and implementation. With this aim in mind, the global RDA adoption team is developing a series of tailored calls aimed at training and outreach, with the first scheduled for 22 March 2019 at 8am PDT/ 11am EDT/ 3pm UTC, which will be focused on RDA’s work in health research.
GEDE Webinar on Maturity Indicators for FAIRness and Certification of Repositories
22 Mar 2019 - 14:00
Peter Wittenburg, GEDE Co-Chair
Maggie Hellström (GEDE, ICOS), Erik Schultes (GOFAIR), Mark Wilkinson (GOFAIR), Ingrid Dillo (FAIRsFAIR, CTS), Edit Herczog (GEDE, RDA)
The FAIR principles are being accepted widely in the scientific community now as a pre-condition for making data driven science more efficient. Consequently, various initiatives are busy to identify what machine-actionable FAIRness functionally means and how levels of FAIRness can be objectively and reproducibly assessed. Given the huge amount of data it is also becoming obvious that tools are required that measure FAIRness automatically. This webinar therefore is an excellent opportunity to listen first to one of the designers behind the FAIR principles and first simple criteria for FAIRness (Erik Schultes), to a colleague who already is working on suggestions of how to automate measuring FAIRness (Mark Wilkinson) and of a colleague responsible involved in CoreTrustSeal and now also in the new FAIRsFAIR project of the EC (Ingrid Dillo). In addition, Edit Herczog will briefly explain what the task of the FAIR Maturity Working Group within RDA will be.
