The Research Data Alliance, launched in 2013, is an international, community driven forum for data professionals across the globe to collaborate and develop solutions to enable the open sharing and re-use of data. Plenary meetings are an excellent milestone for interested parties to meet and discuss possible new topics, hold working and interest group meetings, and to showcase the open and accessible achievements and outputs delivered by all the RDA groups. The discussions in RDA plenary meetings continue after the meeting and offer you invaluable benefits to advance your work and connect with peers on an international level.
P21 includes 48 parallel sessions spread across four days during IDW, covering topics such as:
FAIR, CARE, TRUST Principles, Adoption, Implementation, and Deployment,
Institutional, Regional or Disciplinary, International Data Infrastructures and Environments
Training, Stewardship, and Data Management Planning
Semantics, Ontology, and Standardization
Data Lifecycles – Versioning, Provenance, Citation, and Reward
Discipline Focused Data Sessions
RDA community membership is free for all individuals who wish to join, and all are encouraged to contribute and take advantage of the open outputs.
