Thanks, Timea, for the clarification. It is good indeed to have the generic ambassador list available, I was thinking about people from a given field willing to contact ‘their’ ambassador. Maybe this can go first to the generic email list and continue through a private discussion.
In some cases it might be more efficient to have a personal contact from the start, when people hear about someone in their community for instance, but it is true that if private emails are to be exposed it is a serious issue. What do the ambassadors think?
Cheers

Hi Francoise,
Yes, there is an external contact list to be used to contact the Ambassadors. I did mention it in my email below, sorry if it wasn’t clear. The contact list is ***@***.***-alliance.org, available on the overview page (can highlight it in a different colour to make it more visible).
If any of the Ambassadors also wishes to have their email address listed on the website, we can do that, of course. We didn’t want to take it for granted since many use their institutional one or might have privacy concerns if their personal one gets listed.
We are open to and support whatever the individual choice is but have provided a contact list on behalf of the project so as to make sure whoever wishes to contact the Ambassadors has that option available.
Many thanks,
Timea

Dear Timea,
Thanks for the link to the overview page. I am preparing a message to the RDA France list, which will also include information about the second call for candidates.
One question is about suggesting that the Ambassadors can be contacted by the community. For me it is important to allow this kind of direct link. What do the Ambassadors think about it?
If it is OK we have to provide the community with a way to send a message to the Ambassador they want to get in touch with. Some people may not want to display their emails too prominently. Could we provide the Contact page of the individual’s personal page? Sorry if it is done already, I did not find it…
Cheers
Francoise

Dear all,
This is just to let you know that we have published the Ambassadors overview page on the RDA website https://www.rd-alliance.org/rda-disciplines/rda-europe-ambassadors
Thank you for sending the information in. We have done minor edits to text and photos to harmonize them, please feel free to check and suggest any updates or corrections if necessary. We now also have an external contact list now set up now and will be promoting that as the way of contacting you.
As you might have seen from previous exchanges we would like to promote the use of the Frascati R&D categorisation in reference to disciplines https://read.oecd-ilibrary.org/science-and-technology/frascati-manual-20
We kindly ask you to review the list and suggest what would be the best fitting title for you. If appropriate, it should be in the format broad classification / second-level classification e.g. Engineering and technology / Materials engineering, if not, it can be just the broad classification e.g. Social Sciences , if you feel that is more suitable and a better reflection of your work.
Thank you for your patience, we know we have already had an exchange on this but it is a work in progress with other activities and we think it would be good to align as much as and as soon as possible. We have also just now included it as mandatory field for the applications to the 2nd Ambassadors Open Call launched yesterday.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me if you need more information or clarifications.
Many thanks and best regards,
Timea
