Dear chairs,
This is the last week to apply to the RDA Europe Domain Ambassadors
programme. In this 2nd and final wave, the *RDA Europe Ambassador programme
offers 6 grants of a maximum of €7,000 each.*
The call targets recognised domain experts and skilled communicators,
serving as conduits between the RDA and the wider domain specific
communities to which the Ambassadors belong. By ensuring this 2-way
communication, the grants support awareness raising around the the work and
outputs of RDA and also aim to help discipline experts grow their network
and collaborate with like-minded people and organisations. RDA Europe is
committed to provide Ambassadors with both financial and operational
support for the Ambassadorial work, and the official acknowledgement of the
role, which will increase the impact of their work, professional growth and
recognition.
RDA Europe 4.0 project partners would like to ask you to share this within
your WG/IG, your organisations and networks and encourage thought-provoking
applications. Curious about the benefits of becoming an RDA EU Ambassador?
Here are a few highlights from current RDA EU Ambassadors:
