RDA is pleased to announce the opening of the annual Technical Advisory Board (TAB) elections. 5 new members will be elected to RDA’s TAB in this cycle. Online voting was officially opened yesterday during the RDA P12/International Data Week and will remain open for two weeks until 18 November 2018. The newly elected TAB members will be announced shortly after.
RDA Europe, the European plug-in to the Research Data Alliance, has recently established a network of national nodes to foster adoption of RDA outputs in the region, and thereby enable interoperability and data sharing on a global scale. This is the first in a series of three calls for proposals to become a new RDA Europe node. Further calls will be published in early and late 2019. Funding will be assigned via a cascading grants mechanism.
An initial group of European organisations have been funded as RDA nodes to support improved effective national research systems, with the final aim of fostering an open European labour market for researchers, thus facilitating mobility, supporting training and ensuring attractive careers.
RDA is now seeking candidates for its annual TAB election, to be held in September 2016.Terms are for three (3) years. We encourage participation from people in all stages of their careers. Nominations will be accepted until August 15, 2016.
