Subject: [sharc-ig] SHARC session at RDA P12, Gaborone, Botswana 8 nov
Dear Sharc members,
Louise Bezuidenhout and Fiona Murphy from our IG will be running the SHARC’s session at RDA P12 in Gaborone next thursday 8 nov 9.30-11.00 (central african time, UTC/GMT +2 hours). The objective is to address more specifically data sharing challenges within African academic infrastructures and to come up with concrete actions to support resource sharing that could be implemented within African research contexts. Notably, will be discussed: How do we incentivise data sharing in situations where individuals have invested their own money into their research? What is the empirical evidence around the benefits that accrue to researchers when they share their data? Will research partnerships and co-authorship be acceptable conditions for obtaining access to secondary data?
Remote participation will be possible. See the meeting page at:
Note from the session organisers: we invite any SHARC IG members, session participants or other interested parties to post relevant links or questions they would like to see addressed by this group either during the session or later.

Looking forward to interacting with you,
Louise, Fiona,
Laurence and Anne (remotely)
