13 September: RDA Webinar: RDA ICT Technical Specifications - creating positive impact on research

Date/Time: 13 September 2017, 15:00 CEST   - REGISTER NOW 

By joining this Research Data Alliance (RDA) webinar you will learn about:

  • the first set of RDA recommendations recently been published by the European Commission as ICT Technical Specifications;
  • its impact on research and business, on procurement processes and how the ICT technical specifications are envisioned to foster competition in the field ICT and reduce the risk of lock-in to proprietary systems while promoting openness and interoperability.

The webinar will first describe how ICT technical specifications relate to the standardisation efforts in EU and will focus in detail on the 4 RDA recommendations / ICT Technical Specifications and how these recommendations can be used by institutions and public organisations to foster data sharing and interoperability.

RDA Europe, the European plug-in to the global RDA, has carried forward the evaluation, approval and publication of the 4 Recommendations as ICT specifications and is currently working on the submission of a new set of 5 Recommendations for this autumn.
