Setting priorities for global research data sharing at the Research Data Alliance Plenary Meeting

Contributed by: Trust -IT Services | RDA Secretariat

Is there a topic that you feel should be a priority for the global research data sharing agenda? Make sure you submit an RDA 9th Plenary application for a “Birds of a Feather” (https://www.rd-alliance.org/9th-plenary-bof-meeting-application-form) session exploring emerging data sharing topics and new potential working or interest group themes. This is the first step for putting your data challenge on the global research data sharing agenda.
Setting priorities for global research data sharing at the Research Data Alliance Plenary Meeting
The Research Data Alliance (https://www.rd-alliance.org) (RDA) brings together a diverse community of data scientists, librarians, computer scientists, and domain scientists coming from both the public and private sector with one common goal – to remove the barriers to data sharing and reuse. It is a global member based alliance with over 4,500 members coming from 115 countries. RDA members work together in self formed focused Working groups and exploratory Interest Groups, looking at a range of technical and social challenges to data sharing. Examples of the many concrete outputs from RDA groups include Legal Interoperability guidelines related to the intellectual property of data, 23 things: Libraries for Research data with practical guidance on how to incorporate research data management into the practice of librarianship.

RDA organises Plenary meetings (https://www.rd-alliance.org/plenaries) working events, built around the breakout sessions of the RDA Working, Interest and Birds of a Feather Groups every six months. The 9th RDA Plenary Meeting will take place in Barcelona, 5 to 7 April 2017. Co-organized by the Barcelona Supercomputing Center-Centro Nacional de Supercomputación (BSC-CNS) (https://www.bsc.es/) with the support of RDA Europe, the 9th RDA Plenary (https://www.rd-alliance.org/plenaries/rda-ninth-plenary-meeting-barcelona) revolves around the theme of “Data Infrastructures for Open Science”.
