    The Research Data Alliance (RDA) currently hosts over 60 Interest Groups and more than 30 Working Groups consisting of experts who are working on various topics related to (open) research data and innovation.
    To give an overview of the RDA work that is specifically interesting for social sciences researchers, Ricarda Braukmann from Data Archiving and Networked Services (DANS) – the national RDA node for the Netherlands and RDA ambassador for the social sciences and humanities – performed an analysis assessing the relevance of the RDA work for this specific community. She presented her results at the International Conference for Social Sciences (ICSS XV) in Leuven (Belgium) this July. During this conference, about 300 social sciences researchers from more than 50 different countries came together to present their work.
