RDA Group Directory

The Research Data Alliance accomplishes its mission primarily through Communities of Practice, Working Groups and Interest Groups. In order to allow new members to understand what technical and social infrastructure solutions RDA groups are developing, and which scientific disciplines may benefit of RDA Group outcomes, this filter has been created to allow you identify which RDA group(s) might be more useful for your research.
