RDA Europe 3 Task Force on Sustainability Report – prefinal

    Dear all,
    I have prepared the pre-final version of the report integrating all the comments received. You can find the document in two versions, with tracked changes and clean.
    I have integrated the comments/inputs from:
    1. Silvana, on the EC recommendation and on-going collaboration between the new EOSC projects (EOSC-Hub, OpenAIRE-Advance) and RDA to reuse the RDA platform
    2. Natalie, on OECD Global Science Forum and ALLEA E-humanities WG
    3. Hilary, reviewing the document as the new SG, also with an RDA Global eye
    I also went through and updated the whole document as several points have become already outdated, e.g. dates, future actions became past actions, new projects now started like EOSC-Hub and OpenAIRE-Advance, second batch of ICT specifications approved and many more. I have updated the landscape analysis section with the above started projects and their collaboration with RDA, the GEDE output, etc.; updated the financial section with the recent calculations from the Finance Subcommittee, and also made some other minor/editing changes. After accepting all the changes in the clean version, there were some spelling or other errors revealed, so this version should be used as the latest one.
    Let me know if you have any further comments. I would propose that the document is (officially) sent to the Commission at the end of next week. It may be better to label it as “prefinal version” allowing for the EC to come back with some comments before closing it, but if you feel otherwise (especially Peter depending on their expectations), please let me know (and we can label it “final”).
    The last point to consider is whether we want to make part of the document public (e.g. by removing some sensitive parts, such as budget tables or other delicate points).
    I would like to thank all the Task Force members and BoD members who have actively contributed to this document and I think that it is a good read!
    All the best,
