*Apologies for cross-posting*

*What should be the research data sharing priorities? Have your say!*
Is there a topic that you feel should be a priority for the global 
research data sharing agenda? Make sure you submit an application for a 
“Birds of a Feather” 
at the upcoming RDA Plenary 9 meeting 
BoF sessions explore emerging data sharing topics and new potential 
working or interest group themes. This is the first step for putting 
your data challenge on the global research data sharing agenda.

RDA organizes Plenary meetings <https://www.rd-alliance.org/plenaries> 
working events, built around the breakout sessions of the RDA Working, 
Interest and Birds of a Feather Groups every six months. The 9th RDA 
Plenary Meeting will take place in Barcelona, 5 to 7 April 2017. 
Co-organized by the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC-CNS) with the 
support of RDA Europe, the 9th RDA Plenary revolves around the theme of 
“Data Infrastructures for Open Science”. The Call for Session 
applications closes on the 10th of January 2017, 17:00 UTC.

New to RDA? **Are the RDA Groups relevant for you?*
Any RDA member may initiate or join a Working, Interest or Birds of a 
Feather group . To become a member of the RDA, individuals can register 
<https://www.rd-alliance.org/user/register>, free of charge, with the 
RDA online community and confirm their support for the RDA Guiding 
Principles. It is open to anyone interested in contributing to the 
advancement of data-sharing and data-driven research.

The Research Data Alliance (RDA) <https://www.rd-alliance.org> brings 
together a diverse community of data scientists, librarians, computer 
scientists, and domain scientists coming from both the public and 
private sector with one common goal – to remove the barriers to data 
sharing and reuse. It is a global member based alliance with close to 
4,700 members coming from 115 countries.

RDA members work together in self formed focused Working groups 
<https://www.rd-alliance.org/groups/working-groups> and exploratory 
Interest Groups <https://www.rd-alliance.org/groups/interest-groups>, 
looking at a range of technical and social challenges to data sharing. 
Examples of the many concrete outputs 
from RDA groups include Legal Interoperability guidelines related to the 
intellectual property of data, 23 things: Libraries for Research data 
with practical guidance on how to incorporate research data management 
into the practice of librarianship.

Secretariat at enquiries at rd-alliance.org

Wishing you a very Happy New Year!
