Member Support Available for Travel to Plenary 15 in Melbourne
Greetings RDA-US Members,
I am pleased to inform you about a recent development within RDA-US.
Earlier this month, our office received approval from the National Science
Foundation for our grant submission titled “Research Data Alliance Ideate
Incubator (RDA-I2): Conceptualizing an Interdisciplinary Research Framework
for Strengthening Community Impact and Advancing an Innovation Platform.”
The objectives of the proposal are to further the work of the US office by:
- Implementing a pilot facilitation training program for RDA group
chairs to share strategies and tactics for building better connections
across groups, and
- Developing education and training initiatives to increase the
awareness and understanding of RDA outputs to promote broader adoption by
those outside the RDA community.
To support these important endeavors, the award will also provide some
funding for member travel to various meetings, including *Plenary 15 (P15)
in March in Melbourne, Australia
If you are an active US member of an RDA working and/or interest group AND
interested in receiving funding from the US office for travel to P15 (which
would cover air, lodging and meals), we ask that you submit a one-page
essay at *https://www.rd-alliance.org/rda-us-travel-support-application
by *February
10, 2020*, detailing your anticipated level of involvement and ideas on how
you can support these objectives.
Essays will be reviewed and those conveying the highest potential impact on
the meeting and RDA community will be selected for funding. *Notifications
of acceptance will be sent out no later than February 14, 2020*.
Members selected for funding will also be expected to submit a two-page
report after the meeting, summarizing their experience and recommendations
for improvement and further collaboration within the community as it
pertains to group activities and adoption of outputs.
As always, thank you for your involvement with RDA and we look forward to
your continued engagement.
Best regards,
Leslie McIntosh, PhD
Executive Director
Research Data Alliance (US)
