Adoption Stories

You are here

The Research Data Alliance (RDA) currently hosts over 60 Interest Groups and more than 30 Working Groups consisting of experts who are working on various topics related to (open) research data and innovation. These working groups produce the RDA outputs: the technical and social infrastructure solutions enabling data sharing, exchange, and interoperability.

For you, to see how to implement the RDA outputs to improve the sharing, exchange and interoperability of your own data, we’ve asked RDA members who have already adopted RDA outputs, to share their experience and lessons learned in a story. Find below a series of RDA adoption stories by individuals, organisations and projects.



RDA is actively seeking new adoption stories to inspire the further uptake of RDA outputs.
