RDNL joins CODATA10 December 2014
Research Data Netherlands has recently become a member of CODATA, the Scientific Committee of the International Council for Science (ICSU) that deals with data from all fields of science and technology. For both parties the collaboration is a valuable addition to existing international partnerships.
CODATA focuses on improving the quality, reliability, management and accessibility of scientific research data and together its members represent all continents. Since other data organizations often operate at European level, the membership of CODATA is a great opportunity for RDNL to broaden its horizon. The fact that the back offices of 3TU.Datacentrum, DANS and SURFsara speak with one voice through Research Data Netherlands as a national partner is in turn appealing for international partnerships such as CODATA. Research Data Netherlands therefore looks forward to a fruitful cooperation within CODATA.
