Open Access Research Data without Barriers

As “big data” emerges as an international priority, the Research Data Alliance (RDA) is a newly formed organization whose goal is to accelerate data-driven innovation world-wide through research data sharing and exchange.

At its first Plenary, the RDA was launched by sponsors from the European Commission, the U. S. Government and the Australian Government and leaders in the data community. The Plenary was a working meeting to accelerate discussion, Working and Interest Group interaction, and data community development.

Research Data Community Gathering and Working Meeting

The Research Data Alliance Launch was marked by 3 days of outstanding speakers, working sessions, active contributions from  international experts working to increase the data sharing and exchange needed to drive global innovation and success.
