NEW! February 2020: In order to make it easier for you to collaborate with your teams, we have improved the user experience of your Groups’ online space. A series of icons and labels now guide your activity and help you post messages to the group members, create and organise wiki pages, send events’ announcements, publish and organise the outputs and case statements resulting from your group’s activity and browse all the members of your Group. One new area also collects the Plenary sessions your group contributed to.

We hope that you’ll find this useful! Please do not hesitate to send your comments and suggestions to the RDA Secretariat here.

Current Status of Future Direction Actions

 

To be adaptive to an ever-changing data and research landscape, RDA seeks to be an agile organisation responding to change whle continually planning for an impactful future. As per the RDA Governance Document, Strategic Planning and the development of the RDA Strategic Plan is the responsibility of Council, but it is critical that the broader RDA community engage in the discussion, development, and implementation of RDA's future directions.

This site serves as a communications hub for sharing plans and ideas leading to a clear directions plan that informs clear and concrete community actions for the next few years.

This particular initiative was launched with a meeting convened in San Diego coincident with the Fifth RDA Plenary, on Saturday 7th March for the purposes of Future Directions for RDA consultation. The report from that meeting wil provide the basis for planning and community activites between now and Plenary 6, 23-25 September 2015.

The schedule lays out the status of various community engagement activities in the coming months, but Council welcomes comment on the report at any time. Members are also welcome to join the Planning Group running the process if they are willing to contribute.
