Implementing good research data management practices and Open Science guidelines requires effort at grass-roots, engaging researchers and research performing organisations but also at national level, policy makers working with funders and key organisations informing these policies.
The report by FAIRsFAIR, RDA Europe, OpenAIRE, EOSC-hub, FREYA, is an output of three workshops designed to explore, discuss and formulate such recommendations and is aimed at stakeholders in the scholarly world and particularly the EOSC Governance.
In this article lead by Mike Fortun and Kim Fortun, the authors discuss four different ways they are involved in and with collaborative projects. The Digital Practices in History and Ethnography Interest Group (DPHE-IG) they organized within the Research Data Alliance (RDA) is mentioned as part of these discussions.
The goal of this report is to provide a broad overview of the way the Research Data Alliance (RDA) and the humanities as an academic discipline can be of value to each other. The intended audience for this report in the first instance are digital humanities researchers and service providers in the humanities domain. By providing basic relevant information on the RDA for this target group it is foreseen that they can benefit from the output of the RDA and increase their involvement in RDA activities.
The RDA Europe Industry Advisory Board (RDA IAB), conducted a series of interviews with private sector representatives. The interviews focused in four areas: the role of data in the companies’ activity, the recurring problems that the companies encounter in this scenario, the initiatives to solve these recurring problems, and the opportunities for academia and industry to collaborate in their mutual benefit. The conclusions of this survey are reported and explained.
