Case Statements



RDA is an international volunteer member based organisation and as such encourages the initiative and support of its members across the globe to animate their community on a national level. As researchers and innovators are local rather than global, interacting with them in the local language, offering them a platform for exchange of information pertinent to the RDA and their activities and in strict compliance with RDA's guiding principles of Openness, Transparency, Consensus-based, Community driven, Harmonisation and Non-profit, these national pages are animated by RDA volunteer members who have offered to be a contact point. They should not be interpreted as an official representation of the Research Data Alliance in any country or any organisation, unless this is specifically stated.

Research Data Alliance United States (RDA-US) is a national RDA node dedicated to representing emerging research and data management communities throughout the United States. RDA-US will operate as a formal participant of the RDA Region of the Americas and RDA Working and Interest Groups, assisting in the adoption of RDA recommendations, and allowing United States stakeholders to benefit directly from RDA support mechanisms. These new connections will bring key United States issues to the global data management table, and global discussions back to the United States.  Newsletters and Webinars below.
