RDA Europe Newsletter: Open Call for adoption of RDA outputs, Webinar and supporting FAIR data series of workshops

Is your organisation working on the vanguard of data activities in a specific research domain or cluster of domains? Would your organisation like to support and encourage examples of adoption which can benefit others, promote these examples and learn lessons about benefits and challenges that arise from making use of RDA recommendations? If so, RDA Europe strongly encourages your organisation to apply for our Adoption projects programme.  

 

Call for adoption projects

The RDA EU Adoption Projects Programme offers up to eight grants of a maximum of €15,000 each. The intent of the call is to support and encourage examples of adoption which can benefit others, to promote these examples and to learn lessons about benefits and challenges that arise from making use of RDA recommendations. RDA Europe is calling upon European organisations adopting RDA outputs.  Implementation of these outputs can take place in a wide range of contexts. Within a research group, an organisation, a discipline, a tool, a data service or any other context in which adoption can provide lessons for others. Applications from industry, charity, research organisations, public bodies and learned societies are all welcome provided that they come from groups eligible for European funding.



Submit a focused, time phased and impactful workplan in good time.

RDA Europe aims to have up to 8 impactful and shareable use-cases for adoption.

The call closes on 4 March 2019 17:00 CEST.  To find out more and apply visit: https://grants.rd-alliance.org/OpenCalls/call-europe-adoption-grants
