This event will focus on the issues related to practical implementation of research commons.  The opening panel session will discuss diverse global perspectives in approaches to implementation, and will examine several themes and challenges in assembling the main features of such research commons.  The second part of the event will focus on how to implement these challenges from the bottom-up, showcasing examples of how RDA’s diverse data community are tackling challenges, with specific examples from the EOSC Future contexts. Topics will cover practical aspects of implementation such as Interoperability, Discoverability and Community Engagement. The event is jointly organised by RDA and the EOSC Future project.
