Dear WG and IG chairs,
The RDA Technical Advisory Board (TAB) is organising a "TAB Meets Chairs" remote event on Thursday 20 January 2022. This will be in the same format as RDA IG and WG Chairs meetings, with 5 topics that we have constructed together. We hope to fuel discussion that will improve the efficiency and productivity of both the groups (Interest Groups, Working Group, and Communities of Practice) and the TAB.
Research Data Alliance (RDA) 18th Virtual Plenary Meeting
3 – 11 November 2021
Fully virtual, fully global.
RDA Plenary meetings are the twice-annual meetings where the members of the RDA meet to discuss possible new topics through Birds of a Feather (BoF) meetings, hold Working and Interest Group and Community of Practice (CoP) meetings, and conduct RDA business. These plenary meetings serve as important milestones in the life of the Work of RDA, especially in terms of achievements and outputs.
The three-year term for the following five Technical Advisory Board (TAB) members ended this past month:
- Jeremy Geelen
- Christine Kirkpatrick
- Dimitris Koureas
- Isabelle Perseil
- Frankie Stevens
We thank them tremendously for their dedication to RDA during the past few years, and also thank Isabelle and Frankie for offering to stay on for another term.
Two new TAB members joined Isabelle and Frankie on 1 December in starting a three year term. These members are:

These organisations will seek the establishment of the implementing principles of openness, consensus, inclusivity and harmonisation to build a social and technical infrastructure that enables open sharing and re-use of research data between regions to improve communication, to facilitate the exchange of resources, and technical capabilities.
