RDA meets researchers in Slovakia, 23 May 2017, Bratislava

23 May 2017

Date and time: 23.05.2017, 09:00 – 13:00
Venue: Institute of Informatics, Slovak Academy of Sciences, Dubravska cesta 9, 84507 Bratislava, Slovakia
Audience: Research communities, policy makers, open science enablers and promoters

With more than 4,900 members globally representing 118 countries, RDA includes data science professionals from multiple disciplines, including but not limited to academia, agronomy, chemistry, biology, library sciences, earth sciences, astronomy and meteorology. The European branch of the Research Data Alliance (www.rd-alliance.org), RDA Europe, is organising a series of RDA events in Europe. The aim is to make the work of the RDA better known and to lower the effort to participate in the RDA activities in general and the Working and Interest groups in particular.

The event is focused on engaging the Slovakian research communities, researchers in general, policy makers in open access to data, open science enablers and the re-use of research data champions to join and discuss technological as well as sociological matters around the re-use of research data on the national, European and global.
