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.

As we are in an age of “data deluge”, private and public institutions and research communities need to tackle the high demand of data-intensive science. The potential of sharing data is incredibly high and indeed can completely revolutionise the way researchers work.

The e-Infrastructure Reflection Group (e-IRG) has produced a new document titled "Evaluation of e-Infrastructures and the development of related Key Performance Indicators". The objective of this e-IRG document is to provide an initial framework for evaluation and assessment of regional, national and European e-Infrastructures and to develop a categorisation of KPIs for key areas/components and other cost-related information, basically for the funder and policy level.

The U.S. region of RDA is ready to go from “start up” to sustainable, and is seeking an Executive Director (ED) who can take RDA/US from its current successful state to the next generation of the organization -- “RDA/US 2.0”. The RDA/US ED will work with the RDA/US Chair and professional team, RDA/US community, and larger RDA membership and stakeholders to help lead this transformation. The ideal candidate will have experience with collaboration and partnership within the academic, public, non-profit private, and for-profit private sectors.

Date and time: 14.06.2017, 09:00 – 13:00
Venue: Chalmers Teknikpark, Sven Hultins gata 9C, 41288 Göteborg, Sweden
Audience: Research communities, policy makers, open science enablers and promoters

The European branch of the Research Data Alliance, RDA Europe, is organising a series of RDA events through Europe. The aim if this event 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.

On the 3 April 2017 14:30 CEST, the awards ceremony for the successful contractors moving to the Prototype Phase of the Helix Nebula Science Cloud Pre-Commercial Procurement  is taking place at CERN, in Geneva, Switzerland.
