RDA Ireland Spotlight interviews: the Health Research Board, Science Foundation Ireland and the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland
Implementing good research data management practices and Open Science guidelines requires effort at grass-roots, engaging researchers and research performing organisations but also at national level, policy makers working with funders and key organisations informing these policies.
To better understand the context and developments in Ireland, the RDA IE national node has reached out to a series of organisations that have established themselves as drivers for the research data management, Open Science and Open Access movements. The interviews provide insights about the work at their own organisational levels, the challenges faced and how practical implementations were made possible. They share lessons learned and help gain a wider perspective on how the Irish contributions fit in the bigger picture at European and international levels.
The first three Spotlight interviews were conducted with Dr. Patricia Clarke from the Health Research Board Ireland (HRB), Dr. Marion Boland from Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) and Andrew Simpson from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI).
