Members of RDA are heavily involved in testing and evaluating RDA outputs as part of diverse adoption or other activities, commonly referred to as test bed activities. A test bed is understood as a systematic effort to evaluate one or multiple RDA outputs against practically relevant use cases in a pilot environment. They may also already cross institutions or disciplines and might be open to third-party users, though these latter points are no requirements.
The RDA-EU3 is a Coordination and Support Action (CSA) to promote the RDA mission in Europe and support a stronger participation of Europeans in RDA. For the long term sustainability of RDA in Europe and worldwide, industrial uptake of RDA output is essential.
