The Research Data Alliance (RDA) is a grassroots initiative supported financially by the EU, US and Australia with the aim of building the social and technical bridges for sharing and reusing research data - specifically in the form of working groups where researchers and professionals develop, for example, technical standards, guides and domain specific best practices in research data management (RDA outputs).
The Research Data Alliance (RDA) was launched as a community-driven initiative in 2013 by the European Commission, the United States Government's National Science Foundation and National Institute of Standards and Technology, and the Australian Government’s Department of Innovation with the goal of building the social and technical infrastructure to enable open sharing and re-use of data.
The RDA community includes researchers, scientists, IT specialists, data professionals, and other experts. All data lifecycle stages are covered - topics include i.a. data publication, data citation, data management planning, data processing, data interoperability.
RDA recommendations (formally endorsed) enable data sharing, exchange and interoperability - they include i.a. specifications, taxonomies, ontologies, workflows, data models. RDA recommendations and outputs contribute to tackle real-world challenges.
