RDA Europe, the European plug-in to the Research Data Alliance, is expanding its network of thirteen national nodes (Austria, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain and UK) to foster adoption of RDA outputs in the region.
Nodes engage with research communities, support national agendas and contribute to the EU Open Science Strategy to ensure capillary uptake of RDA principles and outputs and aim to increase the participation in RDA globally.
If your organisation is working to enable open sharing of data and is based in a country not covered by an existing RDA national node, apply to the RDA Europe second call for new nodes.
How to become a node: the second call for national node grants
To become a node, your organisation must apply for a grant (grants.rd-alliance.org) to set up and manage a new RDA EU National Node, and develop and implement a broad-based and representative action plan aligned with RDA’s global vision and with national and European Digital agendas. Funding will be assigned via a cascading grants mechanism. This second call plans to award grants to six new European nodes. The total funding available in this call is €194,400. The deadline for submitting applications is 26 April 2019, more information here.
