Research Data Alliance Europe has recently established a network of national nodes as part of the RDA Europe 4.0 project. Nodes engage with research communities, support national agendas, contribute to the EU Open Science Strategy, and aim to increase the uptake of standards and participation in RDA globally. In collaboration with a diverse range of national and regional stakeholders, they support the RDA mission of building the technical and social bridges that enable open sharing of data.

Starting in 2018, the initial network of nine nodes will be expanded via a cascading grant funding mechanism. An additional 13 nodes will be established over the next three years.

The webinar covers:

  • What are RDA Europe National Nodes?

  • What activities are nodes engaged in?

  • What is the process to become a new node?

  • What evaluation criteria will be used to assess applications?

The webinar is organised by Daniel Bangert (University of Göttingen) and Sarah Jones (Digital Curation Centre) on behalf of RDA Europe.


Who should attend?

European-based researchers, data practitioners, funders, policy-makers or organisational representatives who are interested in applying to become an RDA Europe National Node. Applicants to the scheme will need to demonstrate involvement in the Research Data Alliance and broad engagement with relevant national stakeholders.
