In 2023 the Research Data Alliance will celebrate its 10th anniversary and will commemorate this important milestone by organizing a series of international and regional events and activities. Each month of 2023, from February to November, will be dedicated to a specific theme related to research data management of relevance to the RDA community. The RDA Secretariat and regional bodies are organizing various thematic events and activities (e.g., webinars, workshops and podcasts).
  • February: FAIR data, software and hardware
  • March: A Decade of Data: The RDA’s 20th Plenary meeting
  • April: Health and medical data 
  • May: Metadata and technical infrastructure 
  • June: Agriculture and environmental data 
  • July: Research data policy 
  • August: Disciplinary data 
  • September: Sustainable development and responsible research 
  • October: International Data Week— A Festival of Data 
  • November: Research data management support and education 
Aligned with the 10th anniversary schedule, a virtual workshop will take place each month to bring RDA Working groups, Interest groups and Communities of Practice with a similar focus together to discuss the future of the research data management themes within the RDA community over the next five years.  
The RDA community and wider research data management communities are welcome to contribute to the 10th anniversary celebrations.
