RDA co-sponsors CODATA Workshop on Big Data for International Science Programmes

RDA is pleased ot further its collaboration with CODATA and as well as ICSU and Chinese Academy of Sciences by supporting the CODATA Workshop on Big Data for International Scientific Programmes: Challenges and Opportunities.
 
The workshop is designed to provide a better understanding of the opportunities and challenges of ‘Big Data’ for international collaborative science programmes, including ICSU-sponsored programmes such as Future Earth and Integrated Research on Disaster Risk (IRDR), as well as international initiatives such as the Group on Earth Observations (GEO), the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES), the International Society for Digital Earth (ISDE), and initiatives sponsored by the Belmont Forum. The results of the workshop will also help set an agenda for CODATA activities on Big Data for international science.
