“What is the Research Data Alliance and how can it benefit you?” Kick-off event RDA in Denmark


Are you encountering everyday challenges while creating, collecting and managing data?

Do you often find that your work as a data creator, data manager, data steward or data curator is not properly recognized and valued?

Then, the Research Data Alliance (RDA) is the right place for you!

With over 8100 members from 137 countries, the RDA provides a forum where members come together to develop and adopt solutions that promote data-driven research, data sharing and accelerate the growth of a cohesive data community.

Join us on June 14th, 2019 from 09:00 to 12:30 in Copenhagen for a workshop on RDA and the Danish RDA Node.
At the event, you will learn more about RDA, its recommendations and outputs, and funding opportunities. You will hear more about how you can join, contribute and help shape the landscape for working with research data in Denmark and internationally.

Workshop venue: K150 at Kilen, Copenhagen Business School (the room is located on the 1st floor), address: Kilevej 14 A/B, 2000 Frederiksberg (Metro station: Fasanvej)
