The digital change and the huge increase of volume and complexity of data will revolutionize science and industry.
To make sense of this evolving and complex landscape, and to make sure the work done has a high impact, RDA will continue to provide training opportunities.
RDA offers a series of training webinars, face-to-face workshops, hackathons/datathons partly organized as “summer schools” and special meetings on request. The topics will be primarily related with RDA recommendations and outputs, but it will also address general topics facilitating data sharing and re-use, interviews with notable people and information sessions such as reports from RDA plenaries.
In case that you are unable to attend a webinar: All webinars will be recorded, and the videos will be published shortly after the event. They are available in the Past Webinars section of this website.

Decomposing Observable Property Descriptions into Machine-Readable Components
28 Jul 2021 - 15:00 to 16:00 UTC
The RDA I-Adopt Working Group presents the "Decomposing Observable Property Descriptions into Machine-Readable Components to Increase Interoperability Across Data Standards" webinar. This webinar introduces using the Interoperable Descriptions of Observable Property Terminology (I-ADOPT) framework for representing components of observable properties, also called variables, in a machine-readable format to allow for easier mapping between dedicated terminologies.
RRIDs: A Way to Track Samples Through the Scientific Literature
10 Aug 2021 - 19:00 to 20:00 UTC
The second webinar in this series will outline how RRIDs (Research Resource ID’s), persistent identifiers used to track key biological resources, i.e., "physical samples" for the biomedical field, successfully drove improvements in resource identification. It will highlight lessons learned, and how any research field could learn from the challenges that the RRID project faced in implementing RRID’s. Particularly the successful adoption of RRIDs by publishers and the research community is of interest to anyone interested in persistent identifiers.
