RDA UK is one of nine national nodes, recently established by the RDA Europe 4.0 project, which forms a network of national nodes to foster adoption of RDA outputs in the region, and thereby enable interoperability and data sharing on a global scale. Nodes engage with research communities, support national agendas, contribute to the EU Open Science Strategy, and aim to increase the uptake of standards and participation in RDA globally. In collaboration with a diverse range of national and regional stakeholders, they support the RDA mission of building the technical and social bridges that enable open sharing of data.
The RDA UK node is the Science & Technology Facilities Council (STFC), supported by Jisc. As part of the project STFC will be running a number of webinars and workshops to promote the work of the RDA and engage with the UK research community. Please find below the recording of the first webinar held on 12 December, where the UK national node has been launched and activities presented, as well as the work of the RDA. The webinar included the following speakers and topics:
