Subscription to the RDA in Spain Group

Dear members of the RDA in Spain Group,

RDA is an international volunteer member based organisation and as such encourages the initiative and support of its members across the globe to animate their community on a national level. Researchers and innovators are local rather than global. Therefore interacting with them in the local language, offering them a platform for exchange of information suitable to the RDA and their activities, in compliance with RDA's guiding principles, is part of RDA's mission.
