Programme details


The RDA Plenaries are working meetings held every six months and are designed to bring together the RDA consolidated community as well as new members in an engaging and productive setting to help advance the work lead by the RDA Working and Interest groups and RDA as a whole. The 7th RDA Plenary Meeting is taking place 1 -3 March 2016 in Tokyo – Japan. This plenary’s special focus is “Making data sharing work in the era of Open Science”. The plenary will continue to drive the adoption of the RDA group outputs that tangibly accelerate progress for global data sharing and increase data-driven innovation.


All RDA members and the public are invited to become a part of a truly global endeavour to overcome the barriers to research data sharing and join the Plenary in Tokyo.  Data experts, scientists, researchers and other professionals are encouraged to attend, and we particularly welcome students and early career professionals in industries related to the fields of research data sharing and exchange.
