Community Cross-fertilisation Workshop: RDA for Persistent Identifiers

The community cross-fertilisation workshop ‘RDA for Persistent Identifiers’ brings RDA community groups and members together with the wider research data community for a discussion about the future of persistent identifiers (PIDs) within the community. 

On Friday 12 May 2023 at 23.59 UTC the RDA Council Elections closed. The RDA global community were asked to vote for four new members to join the nine-person board, responsible for the Research Data Alliance global vision, strategy and organisational health.

The future for virtual research environments (VREs) warrants exploration as we consider the possibilities that extend well beyond research and high-performance computing into new interfaces, applications and user communities. In this discussion, we look retrospectively at the successes of representative gateways thus far. This serves to highlight existing gaps VREs need to overcome in areas such as accessibility, usability and interoperability, and in the need for broader outreach by drawing insights from technology adoption research.

Sign up for the event here.
