On the 2 November 2016, Jisc and the Research Data Alliance (RDA) will host their first joint workshop in Birmingham, UK. At the event, topics include how to engage with the RDA, practical uses of RDA outputs, and discussions with groups working on Trust and Certification, Metadata Standards, Data Citation and Publishing Data.
The programme is now available at https://www.jisc.ac.uk/events/rda-workshop-02-nov-2016.
This one day workshop will provide attendees with information about how the RDA, as a community-driven organisation, is working to achieve its vision. It will include representatives from specific working and interest groups highlighting their work and discussing how this work can be used practically in universities and data centres in the UK. The event will be of particular interest to decision makers, managers and enablers, users and consumers, researchers and research managers.
Speakers at the workshop include Rachel Bruce (Deputy Chief Innovation Officer, Jisc), Mark Parsons (Secretary General, RDA) and Juan Bicarregui (RDA Europe). Chairs from the relevant groups and implementers of the groups’ outputs will run parallel and interactive discussions with the purpose of communicating their work and discovering how these can be used practically in the UK.
This event is free, but you must register to attend at https://www.jisc.ac.uk/events/rda-workshop-02-nov-2016.
