Gothenburg Gothenburg, Sweden

A satellite half-day event in conjunction with the RDA 20th Plenary Meeting in Gothenburg, Sweden (21-23 March). It will touch on the main issues related to practical implementation of research commons. To this end, the event will attract an international audience of key actors involved in implementing research commons at disciplinary, regional or national levels, funders, data experts, technical managers, and in general. Panellists will open with global perspectives on implementation approaches, examining themes and challenges of assembling the main features of a research commons. The second part of the event will showcase examples of how RDA’s diverse data community are tackling challenges. EOSC Future will also share examples, via its RDA Open Calls programme, related to the practical aspects of implementation such as: interoperability, discovery, upskilling.
