The Research Data Alliance (RDA) builds the social and technical bridges that enable open sharing of data. The RDA vision is researchers and innovators openly sharing data across technologies, disciplines, and countries to address the grand challenges of society. Under the theme "From Data to Knowledge", the Plenary Meeting welcomes the participation of all data scientists, experts and practitioners engaged in the advancement of data-driven science and economy. The Research Data Alliance and the 2.5-day Plenary meeting provide the ideal, neutral and trustworthy forum to discuss the opportunities and challenges of a global data ecosystem of best practices, standards and interoperable data infrastructures fostering cross-disciplinary knowledge and innovation.
The Helmholtz Association is a member of the RDA. The GFZ Library and Information Services (LIS) is the local organizer for this conference.
