Training & Webinars

The digital change and the huge increase of volume and complexity of data will revolutionize science and industry. 

To make sense of this evolving and complex landscape, and to make sure the work done has a high impact, RDA will continue to provide training opportunities.

RDA offers a series of training webinars, face-to-face workshops, hackathons/datathons partly organized as “summer schools” and special meetings on request. The topics will be primarily related with RDA recommendations and outputs, but it will also address general topics facilitating data sharing and re-use, interviews with notable people and information sessions such as reports from RDA plenaries. 

In case that you are unable to attend a webinar: All webinars will be recorded, and the videos will be published shortly after the event. They are available in the Past Webinars section of this website.


Please use the registration form to sign up for the webinars. The webinar access link will be provided upon registration. Specific information will be provided for participation to the face-to-face and hackathon events.
