As part of The Research Data Alliance (RDA) Interest Group on Agricultural Data (IGAD) meeting focusing on IGAD/RDA : Sharing Experiences and Creating Digital Dialogues, IGAD co-chairs, Françoise Genova, RDA Technical Advisory Board, and Medha Devare, CGIAR presented a webinar during the ‘Closing Remarks’ session on May 28.
This session focused on two of the main topics currently under discussion within IGAD: 1.) The possible expansion to Communities of Practice as a complementary role to the RDA and its working Groups; and 2.) the proposal to create a new working group within the IGAD umbrella dedicated to Crop Data Interoperability.
This session also included the participation of Françoise Genova (RDA Technical Advisory Board) and Medha Devare (CGIAR) and also discussed the next activities within IGAD.
The Research Data Alliance (RDA) Interest Group on Agricultural Data (IGAD) meeting was set to be held in Rome (Italy) in April 2020 but instead, took place as a virtual meeting from May 25 to 28. The virtual meeting provided an online platform to continue to build upon collaborations, knowledge sharing and developing innovations with activities including panel sessions, group discussions and presentations.
