Embedding the RDA outputs via European national nodes
Room 2.15, 06/12/2018 (09:00-09:45)
The Research Data Alliance (RDA, https://rd-alliance.org) has, over the past five years, evolved into a community of over 6,900 individuals from 137 countries, with 50% of its members from Europe. RDA builds the social and technical bridges that enable open sharing of data across technologies, disciplines, and countries to address the grand challenges of society. The community-driven and bottom-up approach of RDA has been reinvigorating the research data landscape worldwide since 2012. Zooming in at a European level, the RDA Europe 4.0 project supports a series of national nodes to foster adoption of RDA outputs in the region, and thereby enable interoperability and data sharing on a global scale. Nine European organisations already act as nodes, working as national champions advocating the development of solutions to data challenges in their country and building on the legacy of previous RDA activities in Europe. They represent areas such as Agro & Food, Bio & Health, Environment, Social Science and the Humanities & Engineering. Each node has one or more national priorities of focused activity to pursue that could influence their national digital agendas. The session will showcase the benefits of becoming an RDA Europe node and promote the grants available via a series of open calls to be launched over the course of the 27-month RDA Europe 4.0 project. The event will also present the opportunity to launch the nodes info point, providing a starter kit for national nodes.
