RDA Europe financial support to Early Career and Experts to attend the 11th RDA Plenary meeting, 21-23 March 2018, Berlin
The RDA 11th Plenary will be held in Berlin, 21 to 23 March 2018, gathering leading data scientists and practitioners, policy makers and private sector representatives. To support the participation of both Early Career researchers and Experts to its 11th Plenary, RDA Europe launched two dedicated calls, offering financial support through a series of grants of up to €1750 covering travel, accommodation and registration costs for the successful applicants.
Both Calls for applications close on 26th February 2018, midnight CET
RDA Europe is offering 5 grants to help encourage the participation of early career professionals to learn and contribute and become a part of the RDA global data sharing community.
Moreover, the RDA 11 Plenary will provide them the opportunity to engage with data experts and communities represented at the event and gain expertise on data infrastructures. At the same time, it also allows them to build and expand their network.
Applicants from the Early Career European Researchers category will be required to display a poster summarising their studies and areas of interest, attend a working group meeting, take notes and write a blog or article for the RDA website.
For more information on how to apply, check out the details and application form at RDA EU Expert Support Programme for the RDA 11th Plenary.
Aside from the grants for early career researchers, five grants will also be available for experts to shoulder their costs for attending the RDA 11 Plenary.
The grants directly benefit experts who have a strong interest in the RDA and are either drivers or adopters of one or more of the RDA EU outputs that support data sharing within their projects or organisations. Those who wish to apply for the grant must reside and work in Europe.
Applications will be judged based on the level of interest and commitment, their contributions to RDA WG or IG, recommendations or outputs, their work as ambassadors for RDA within their communities, organisations and at national levels.
