Meeting co-located with the 14th RDA Plenary 

When: Tue, 22 October 2019, at 15:00 - 17:00, Room: Palaver, Dipoli

We welcome all Early Careers to this meeting designed to bring forward and discuss topics of particular interest to researchers and scientists who are at an early stage in their career. The goal is to highlight initiatives, and organisations the early careers can engage with and provide resources they can leverage when managing research data and taking the first steps towards Open Science.  

This joint endeavour of the RDA Early Career and Engagement Interest Group together with the RDA US and RDA EU Early Career programmes hopes to provide Early Careers with a platform to ask questions and practical advice and to share ideas and experiences. It will also be an opportunity for them to learn about recent developments in the area and network with peers, researchers more advanced in their careers and professionals that support researchers at all stages in their careers.
