The Research Data Alliance in Europe holds an annual science workshop. Previous workshops were in Munich 10 - 11 February 2014 co-organised with the Max Planck Society , the next one was in Geneva 8-9 April 2015 co-organised with CERN, and the third in Paris 19 - 20 April 2016 co-organised with CNRS. We are delighted to announce that the RDA Europe Science workshop 2017 will be held in London, co-organised with the Wellcome Trust.
This event is aimed at launching a research report on “Open data, a Researcher’s Perspective”, followed by a panel discussion moderated by Jean Claude Burgelman (EC).
The Industry Forum is an open event and does not require registration.
VENUE: Barceló Sants - Room MR11
ICSTI WORKSHOPS: ’Enhanced Publications: Approaches to Maximising the Value of Digital Assets to Enhance Scientific Publications’ - and - ‘Scientific Data Repositories : Use Cases, Innovation, and Best Practices’
