The European Data Economy can flourish only if data is accessible & re-usable across borders, across types of organisations (private, public, research) and across different disciplines and sectors.
European researchers, developers, service providers and private sector representatives are invited to join the discussion on the role of research data in the Data Economy context and the RDA contribution to the different Data Economy building blocks.
The goal of the event is to collect and converge the different perspectives and push forward new innovative ideas in the overall context of the challenges and opportunities of the European Data Economy and data-driven innovation in Europe mapped to ongoing activities or future challenges to be addressed by RDA WGs & IGs. Furthermore, RDA Europe is looking to define a pragmatic list of data challenges that are discussed on a national level which may influence the digital national agendas or form proposals to be discussed at the next RDA Plenary in Berlin, 21 – 23 March 2018.
Ultimately the forum will be focused on engaging industry and private sector stakeholders who are involved in scientific research and support the adoption of the RDA Outputs by industry and gathering input from the regional, national activities in Europe – understanding the landscape and defining a way forward for the RDA National nodes.
