RDA Europe, the European plug-in to the Research Data Alliance, has recently established 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.
Starting in 2018, the initial network of nine nodes will be expanded via a cascading grant funding mechanism. The first call will open in May 2018. This webinar will explain how to get involved.
