Agricultural sciences, Engineering, Earth Sciences or High energy physics, these are just a set of the domains that have Ambassadors appointed under the umbrella of the RDA Europe Ambassadors programme, running from March 2018 until September 2020. This concluded activity has been continued with the EOSC Future supported domain ambassador programme.
This initiative, coordinated by the RDA Europe 4.0 project, brought together distinguished and well-connected domain experts who are working to develop a two-way communication and engagement channel, promoting RDA outputs and perspectives on one hand while streamlining insights and practical contributions from domain focused data communities into the work of RDA, on the other.
The Ambassadors facilitate an open dialogue with data practitioners and organisations workin in domain specific areas. The activities focus on the highlighting the value of RDA and the impact of collaboration for all those involved. A calendar of events, webinars, training sessions and other similar activities is available to support interaction.
