RDA 17th Plenary Meeting - Edinburgh (Virtual)
April 20–23, 2021
Plenary 17 in Edinburgh will focus on the themes of global challenges, global mechanisms for data reuse, sustainable solutions with benefits for all, and global cooperation to realise these ends.
How do you ensure global participation in the creation, relevance and use of mechanisms (technical and social) for data interchange?
How can technology lower barriers to uptake - and when might it create barriers?
What means can we create to overcome non-technical barriers to uptake, be they formal (such as legislation and workflows) or informal, behavioural ones?
How do RDA values encourage diversity and safeguard the interests of all, rather than favouring privileged groups?
How can global fora speed up research into crises such as COVID-19, climate change and bio-diversity?
The plenary will highlight several research use cases around global collaboration to address grand challenges and ensure societal impact of data reuse.
