The RDA Europe project has been holding an annual Science Workshop co-organised with a European research organisation since 2014. The third one was held in Paris, 19-20 April 2016, and co-organised with the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique CNRS.
The Workshop provided a view of the disciplinary practices for data management and sharing in a variety of disciplines, and allowed to identify common needs and issues. The needs expressed during the Workshop support the global RDA strategy and reinforce the importance of many of the current RDA activities, with specific recommendations to take into account by RDA Global and RDA Europe.
The document summarises the main topics identified during the meeting, and conclusions with respect to RDA activities. It also identifies several follow-up activities which arose from the discussions.
