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).
The Research Data Alliance (RDA) invites applications for its newly redesigned fellowship program. The program’s goal is to engage early career researchers in the US in Research Data Alliance (RDA), a dynamic and young global organization that seeks to eliminate the technical and social barriers to research data sharing.
EU recently launched a public consultation on possible actions in relation to global coordination of Earth observations via the Group on Earth Observation (GEO).
EU aim is to provide the state of play regarding the implementation of the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) by the Group on Earth Observations during the last ten years.
A call for abstracts is open until the 18 February 2015 for the Impacts of Big Data Technology to Earth Science Data Analysis Session at AOGS 12th Annual Meeting to be held 2-7 August 2015 in Singapore.
F1000Research has recently set up an article collection called Open Knowledge in Agricultural Development (OKAD). The OKAD collection will be open in late April 2015.
Are you a public research organisation or a research data library interested in procuring cloud services? The newly EC funded project PICSE (www.picse.eu) is working on a simpler procurement model for procuring cloud solutions that can support research organisations and in the future.
Help PICSE in understanding what are the barriers that encountered or simply perceived in purchasing cloud.
