RDA Meeting: The Data Sharing Community, Dublin, Ireland, 26 to 28 March 2014
We’ve posted several announcements about the various activities about RDA at Data Forwards. Below is the latest information about a forthcoming RDA meeting in Dublin, Ireland in March.
Data is the very foundation of research, and each year the quantity and velocity of data produced increases. Sharing of research data has the potential to revolutionise the way research is conducted, accelerating discovery and improving society; but sharing research data globally is challenging.
The RDA (Research Data Alliance) is now one year old. It is a global, grass-roots organisation dedicated to developing the tools, infrastructure, services, standards and practices that the research community needs to share and exchange its data treasures.
The third RDA plenary meeting is focused on taking the global partnerships built in the data sharing community through the RDA’s activities to date, combining these with existing infrastructure and best practices across the data sharing community, and enabling the community to drive forward the changes needed for global data exchange. This plenary meeting is about exploiting RDA’s work to date to its full potential.
