The Research Data Alliance contributing to the European Open Science Cloud

  • By Sara Pittonet Gaiarin

Dear all,

we are pleased to share with you this report on RDA integration with other European initiatives issued by RDA Europe 4.0 project, describing the key finding from a survey conducted amongst 22 current, EOSC-related projects, to which many of you also contributed.

The survey found that EOSC projects are actively engaged with RDA in numerous ways. For example, several projects are implementing recommendations from specific RDA Working Groups while others use the RDA community as a way to get feedback on their outputs and build their international network of researchers and data practitioners. 

Members of the RDA community are prominent in all three EOSC Governance bodies and RDA members are present in all EOSC Working Groups. In addition, many of the RDA Europe 4.0 national nodes are involved in EOSC projects, whether they be horizontal eInfrastructure initiatives such as EOSC-hub, OpenAIRE, EOSC Nordic, EOSC-Pillar and NI4OS or disciplinary and thematic initiatives such as SSHOC, ESCAPE and FAIRsFAIR. 

Enjoy the reading and share the report!

All the best

Sara
