Big science is about advancing the frontiers of knowledge. But it is also the source of extraordinary innovation, with huge commercial value and societal impact. So how can Europe become more systematic in extracting this value?
Enabling European researchers and practitioners from any research discipline to preserve, find, access, and process data in a trusted environment. EUDAT offers a complete set of research data services, expertise and technology solutions to all European scientists and researchers. These shared services and storage resources are distributed across 15 European nations and data is stored alongside some of Europe’s most powerful supercomputers.
NSF-supported organization coordinates US participation in global data-sharing and infrastructure-building effort. How can we support agricultural productivity around the world? How can we develop public health models that leverage social data, health data and environmental data? What are best practices to ensure the stewardship of research data today and tomorrow?
The Committee on Data for Science and Technology (CODATA) and the World Data System (WDS)—both Interdisciplinary Bodies of the International Council for Science—and the Research Data Alliance (RDA) are pleased to announce the signing of Memoranda of Understanding outlining their collaboration.
The Open Research Data: Implications for Science and Society Conference is taking place in Warsaw, Poland from May 28-29, 2015.The organisers have published the call for abstracts and the deadline for abstract submission is March 31, 2015.
How can we create more effective treatments for Alzheimer’s? Can we increase food security across the globe? Is there a way to more accurately predict natural disasters? Solutions to these and other critical challenges are being advanced through the sharing and exchange of research data, and the efforts of the Research Data Alliance (RDA). In this Q&A, Dr.
With over 330 people attending Plenary 5 in San Diego, more than 220 of them will attend the Adoption Day activities at San Diego Supercomputing Center (SDSC) on Sunday 8th March. The Research Data Alliance rises to many of today's data challenges providing concrete solutions to overcome some of the many barriers to data sharing and re-use. In less than 2 years since its launch RDA has already published first tangible outputs all aiming to increase inter-operability, reproducibility, trust and ultimately to provide growth & employment opportunities by making data re-use less expensive.
Dr. Francine Berman, RDA Council Co-Chair: recognized for her pioneering work in supercomputing and data preservation. Over the last year alone, Berman was named a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, co-chair of the National Science Foundation (NSF) Advisory Committee for the Computer and Information Science and Engineering Directorate, chair of the board of trustees of the Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology, and a member of the board of directors of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute. In January 2015, she was appointed to the board of trustees of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
The RDA Fifth Plenary is taking place in San Diego, US from 8th – 11th March 2015 and is open to RDA members and the public, particularly individuals that share the core values of creating the building blocks of common data infrastructures that can bridge disciplinary activities under a community-driven and
One year ago, Augusto Burgueño Arjona was appointed Head of Unit eInfrastructures, DG CONNECT at the European Commission. This unit is responsible for funding ICT-based infrastructures and services that cut across a broad range of user disciplines, including the Research Data Alliance (RDA).
