What are Co-located Events?

Co-located events are meetings organised by RDA Organisational and Affiliate Members and make up part of the P23 programme. The events provide organisations the chance to leverage the size and enthusiasm of the international data community present at P23.

This year, co-located events will be held on Monday 11 November and Friday 15 November between 08:00 – 16:00 Costa Rican time. All co-located events will be held fully in-person at the Universidad de Costa Rica campus. 

The local hosts of P23 have offered to assist with the co-located events planning. Two options are offered:

  1. a predefined package that will be tailored to your event’s needs, and/or
  2. the services of an external event agency. 

There are conditions on what the packages can offer. Therefore, we ask you to familiarise yourself with the package prior to getting in touch with the designated contact person (see details below).

Alternatively, a list of local event agencies is available. You can contact them to discuss your events details.

Please note that RDA/local hosts will take no responsibility for the quality of external event services.
