Europe National Node

Group details

Node Coordinators: 

This is a working area dedicated to the RDA activities, news and events in The Netherlands. It aims at connecting researchers and data experts working with research data on a more local level and facilitates interconnecting local activities with broader RDA activities through e.g. RDA Working and Interest Groups.


DANS; Data Archiving and Networked Services, is responsible for setting up the Dutch RDA node and will focus on bringing existing initiatives closer together and expanding collaboration with others by engaging with government, national funding bodies, research organisations, and other networks involved in Research Data Management (RDM).

On a national level, the Dutch RDA node will promote the work done within RDA global in general and in particular the work on certification (of trusted digital repositories) and persistent identifiers (PID). While at the same time make national players enthusiastic to join the global RDA playing field. Next to that we will also provide the RDA ambassadors for the social sciences and the humanities disseminating and advancing the RDA work and outputs within these international communities. For more information see the following videos:

RDA is 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.

Deze pagina geeft informatie over activiteiten, nieuws en evenementen van de RDA in Nederland. Het heeft als doel onderzoekers en data experts, die met onderzoeksdata werken, op een meer lokaal niveau met elkaar in contact te brengen en het verbinden van lokale activiteiten met bredere RDA-activiteiten, bijvoorbeeld door middel van de RDA Working en Interest Groups.


DANS; Data Archiving and Networked Services, is verantwoordelijk voor het opzetten van de Nederlandse RDA node en zal zich focussen op het dichter bij elkaar brengen van bestaande initiatieven en het uitbreiden van samenwerkingen door het gesprek aan te gaan met de overheid, nationale financiers, onderzoeksorganisaties en netwerken die zich met Research Data Management (RDM) bezighouden.


Op nationaal niveau zal de Nederlandse RDA node het werk van RDA global in het algemeen promoten en zich specifiek richten op certificering (van betrouwbare digitale archieven) en persistent identifiers (PID). Tegelijkertijd maken we nationale spelers enthousiast om zich aan te sluiten bij de wereldwijde RDA-initiatieven. Daarnaast leveren we de RDA-ambassadeurs voor de sociale- en geesteswetenschappen, die het RDA werk en output op deze terreinen verspreiden en bevorderen binnen deze internationale onderzoeksgebieden. Voor meer informatie zie de volgende video's:

De RDA is continue op zoek naar onderzoekers, onderzoeksgebieden en partijen in de private sector die geïnteresseerd zijn in het testen en implementeren van output en aanbevelingen van de RDA, en is zeer bereid advies te geven in de verschillende stadia van dit proces.
