From September 11-17, 2016, more than 800 data professionals and researchers from all disciplines and from across the globe convened in Denver, Colorado for International Data Week (IDW). The theme of this landmark event was ‘From Big Data to Open Data: Mobilizing the Data Revolution’.
The RDA Europe project is involved in co-organising the series of RDA Europe Science Workshops together with a well-known research organisation.
We are now calling for proposals for hosting the RDA Europe Science Workshop 2018.
The High Level Expert Group on the European Open Science Cloud (HLEG-EOSC) released its report “Realising the European Open Science Cloud” on 10 October 2016 outlining 15 specific recommendations for the preparatory phase for designing the European Open Science Cloud.
The Research Data Alliance is a unique community-driven organization that offers a neutral space where its engaged, growing members, now more than 4300 spanning over 110 countries, discuss and develop “data bridges” to enable the open data sharing across technologies, disciplines, and countries to address the grand challenges of society.These “data bridges” or “building blocks” of common global data infrastructures are the results of the work done by the RDA Working
As part of the Outputs exploitation and sustainability effort in Europe, RDA Europe, the European plug-in to the global RDA, has supported the approval of the four listed Recommendations as ICT specifications, a particular EU procedure designed to allow ICT specifications issued by a non-standards body to become endorsed standards and referenced in public procurement.
RDA & CODATA join forces to guide research stakeholders in the land of intellectual property providing them with a set of practical guidelines for researchers dealing with the legal aspects entailed in the sharing of data.
The BoF on "Software For Better Description And Retrieval Of Online Scientific Data" will introduce a new dimension to RDA breakout sessions — demonstrations of software to aid better access to online experimental data.
The Working Group on Data Citation (WGDC) has released its final recommendations as a two-page flyer as well as a report providing details on the recommendations for a broad field of scenarios, published in the Bulletin of the IEEE Technical Committee on Digital Libraries. It has now moved into maintenance phase, actively supporting data centres in implementing the recommendations and collecting feedback and lessons learned.
Join the Research Data Alliance and play an active role in the data revolution
The huge amount of data that is being produced in all areas has an enormous potential: being able to use such data in an intelligent way is a crucial enabler for empowering today’s scientific & societal progress.
