You don’t often get email from ***@***.***. Learn why this is important
Dear members of the RDARI interest group and others interested,
At one of the previous planning meetings of the Research Data Alliance Research Data Architectures in Research Institutions (RDARI) Interest Group we discussed the possibility of running a session on Research Data Architectures in the Global South. We would now like to take this idea further and see if we can plan such a session for the next RDA plenary (the virtual one). The deadline for submissions for this Research Data Alliance plenary is 12 February, so quite soon.
I have set up a Doodle Poll to find a timeslot for this meeting. Please add your availability to the Doodle poll at:
I hope there is a timeslot there that will work for you. I will close the Doodle poll and select a timeslot by Wednesday 10 January.
Please come to this meeting especially if you are based in the Global South and responsible for designing or running or coordinating Research Data Architectures at an institution. We are looking for speakers and discussion topics that would make this an interesting session. Please also pass on this email to others that might be interested in this discussion.
Kind regards,
Keith Russell
