Sharing research data for the benefit of all society

 
Last week, iSGTW attended the Research Data Alliance (RDA) Fourth Plenary Meeting in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The RDA, which is supported by funding bodies from Australia, Europe, and the US, seeks to build social and technical bridges in order to facilitate better sharing of research data. The organization has grown rapidly over the 18 months for which it has existed and now boasts over 1,600 individual members from over 70 countries. Last week also saw the release of the first outputs by four of the RDA's working groups.
