Further to ICODA’s recent announcement of the Grand Challenges ICODA COVID-19 Data Science pilot programme, ICODA has received interest from a large number of researchers from over 140 countries.
Following the closure of the ARCHIVER Tender, on the 8th of June 2020 five bids had been selected as a result of the ARCHIVER Pre-Commercial Procurement Request for Tenders for the provision of R&D for hybrid end-to-end archival and preservation services meeting the innovation challenges of the European Research communities, in the context of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). During the following months, these five consortia have been working to provide a written detailed report including the architecture and technical design of the components of their solutions.
On the 18th of November, the Dutch Data Prize will be awarded to a researcher or research group who makes extra contributions to science by making research data available for (additional) research. In order to win this prize, researchers can nominate themselves or another researcher or research group.
Delivering Research Data Management services workshop – registration is now open!

The EOSC Symposium 2020, organised by the EOSC Executive & Governing Boards with the support of the EOSC Secretariat project, brings together researchers, data scientists, e-Infrastructures, research infrastructures, EOSC projects, EOSC Working Group members and representatives of the EU27 Member States and associated countries to discuss the final steps towards the establishment of a first version of a fully-fledged European Open Science Cloud.
Scholarly primitives, such as representing, discovering, sampling and referring are typically well supported by data repositories. However, these do not provide evidence that the data or features provided by the repository are managed and operated in a trustworthy and reliable manner. Assessment against an agreed standard is a way to evaluate the reliability and sustainability of data repositories.
Corpora and datasets of pathological speech are hard to get simply because they are hard to share. In this webinar we will present and explore several alternatives for sharing such sensitive data. The webinar is interesting for all who struggle with sharing and obtaining similar types of data.
Humanities and social sciences researchers encounter a number of data protection issues in their work. An example is scientific events where photos and videos are taken and legal participant consent is required in order to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Surveys and other research activities pose similar problems.
The 2020 edition of the CLARIN Annual Conference will be organised as an online event. This year’s edition has been designed to attract a wider audience and get the most out of the innovative options that come with a virtual format: the conference will consist of special sessions and will be enriched with an informal programme.
