The Sarah Jones Award

In Prague, Czech Republic, 14 June 2024, on the occasion of what would have been Sarah’s 43rd Birthday, the RDA is pleased to announce ‘The Sarah Jones Award for exceptional contribution to fostering collaboration in Open Science.’

With this annual award the global RDA community would like to honour Sarah’s memory and her huge contribution to the Open Science community.

Nominations are invited for individuals who have demonstrated an exceptional contribution to fostering collaboration in Open Science that has had positive change and impact as a result of this work. 

The RDA is accepting donations to the fund for the award. If you would like to contribute to the award in Sarah’s name, we’d be most grateful. All contributions go to the award and will serve to allow us to maintain the award for some years.
