We are inviting your strong participation for “Building up Open Access, Open Education and Open Data for Open Science” on 2nd September 2014 at Nottingham in parallel to OSGIS 2014 .
The aim of this one day event is to bring together participants from various disciplines to enable an in-depth dialogue focused on Open Access , Open Data and Open Education for building synergies and collaboration opportunities for Open Science and also with the "Geo for All" http://www.geoforall.org initiative.
There will also be an "RDA for Newcomers session" organised at this workshop and will be led by Herman Stehouwer. The purpose of the Research Data Alliance https://rd-alliance.org is to accelerate international data-driven innovation and discovery by facilitating research data sharing and exchange, use and re-use, standards harmonization, and discoverability. This will be achieved through the development and adoption of infrastructure, policy, practice, standards, and other deliverables. This session is aimed to welcome and provide opportunity for those who are new to RDA to understand how RDA works and be part of the movement to accelerate international data-driven innovation and discovery by facilitating research data sharing and exchange, use and re-use, standards harmonisation, and discoverability.
