RDA in Finland

NG

Group details

 

This is a working area dedicated to the support and updates of RDA Finnish Node. The Node is hosted at CSC – IT Center for Science Ltd., hence actively acting as a mediator and promoting RDA in Finland and also abroad.

 

National Node acts as the local point of contact between national data practioners and RDA. Our aim as one of the existing nine nodes is to:

  • Support data research at a national/local level, promoting the RDA vision and results, ensuring capillary uptake of RDA principles
  • Synergise with national, European & global organisations in concrete actions to facilitate uptake of RDA recommendations and principles
  • Act as a central contact point between national/regional data practitioners and RDA, interacting with national research funding bodies
  • Contribute to the definition of European data policies
  • Contribute to the definition of RDA’s strategy and participate in RDA processes

This working area connects researchers working with research data in Finland, and enables them to interconnect with broader RDA activities through e.g. RDA Working and Interest Groups. We are continuously looking for researchers, research communities and private sector actors, who are interested in testing and adopting RDA outputs and recommendations, and are happy to give advice in different stages of this process.

 

Feel free to register by clicking on the 'Join' link on the right. You will be automatically subscribed to the group newsletter and will receive all RDA in Finland updates. Don't hesitate to share your own updates via posts to the mailing list or group calendar.

Concepts such as Open Science, Re-use of (Research) Data as well as MyData and Big Data have woken a steady interest among the research community, public administration and industry in Finland. Research Data Alliance (RDA) is one way to promote and support the innovation in these topics and put them into action e.g. by adopting RDA outputs and recommendations.
