Case Statements



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.


This is the subgroup of the RDA-COVID-19 working group focusing on Community Participation.


Potential approach / timeline

  • Scoping document open for comments until *midnight UTC on April 14th*:

  • Develop a prioritised list of things to work on by Wednesday 15 April

  • Form c.6-7 teams of about 15 to get allocated to work on the topics

  • Each group will pick up a single task, in priority order, until we run out of groups  

  • Each group works on their topics for 5 days (ie: until Sunday)

  • On Monday, each team will be allocated a different topic for review over the next 2 days (ie: Monday & Tuesday)

  • Each group resumes work on their original topic afterwards, incorporating the review comments they have received from another group

  • Towards the later part of the 3 weeks, we should look to form a small editorial team, which will look to bring it all together into a coherent piece of work
