Group details

Case Statement: 
IG Established

Status: Recognised & Endorsed

The proposed Research Data Alliance – CODATA Working Group on Legal Interoperability of Research Data (RDA-CODATA WG), will be established to address and promote the following objectives:

  • Define legal interoperability of research data and articulate why it is important for data interoperability and reuse.
  • Document and analyze up to four case studies in the areas of geoscience, biodiversity research, social sciences, and humanities of legal interoperability solutions in interdisciplinary and international contexts. 
  • Develop and publish core principles and guidelines of best practices through which legal interoperability can be achieved, and link to related information resources online.
  • Work with key stakeholder groups to get the core principles and guidelines of best practices adopted.

Re: [rda-legalinterop-ig] invitation to join a new WG on legal recommendations for use of UAS

Dear Group members,
It was great to meet and see some of you again in person at P14 ! Looking very much forward to P15 to continue to work on some exciting (new) initiatives.
I am currently involved in a new WG developing recommendations including legal for research using (data from) Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). It came out of the IG group https://www.rd-alliance.org/groups/small-unmanned-aircraft-systems%E2%80...
We are currently working on the case statement
