After the 14th Plenary

Following a well attended session with lots of discussion we have now uploaded all presentations in one pptx file. It contains:

- The link to the SuAVE tool for visualisation and comparison of survey data results

- Feedback from users, incuding RDA-internal groups, Funders, Policy (Japan)

- Geographical perspective on the basis of 10 survey's checked on their global coverage with an additional view from the African continent, which is not very present in surveys

On the coverage, a draft paper by co-chair David O'Brien and Daniel Gregoire describes in more detail the findings on the 10 surveys. We kindly ask your feedback to this paper. You can download it below. Please direct your comments to dobrien@idrc.ca

Next steps will include further work on the tool, analysis, and user perspective, coming up with recommendations. We will reach out to the Research Funders and Stakeholders on Open Research and Data Management Policies and Practices IG


Preparing for the 14th Plenary in Helsinki

Our session proposal has been accepted and will take place on Friday 25 October from 9.00-10.30.

Essentially, the session will revolve around 3 main topics of 30 minutes each

-          Using the Suave tool to store surveys, and discussion on how to use them and benefit from each other  – Ilya Zaslavsky will join us remotely

-          Geographical distribution and African perspective – followed by discussion. Contributions from David O'Brien and Louise Bezuidenhout

-          User perspective: policy and funder relevance – interaction with the audience to collect feedback. We anticipate external policy perspectives from Japan & Korea, and from the RDA-internal perspective.

The final agenda will follow shortly.
