This blog is for and about the activities of the international CODATA community.
- An international community and network of expertise on research data issues.
- An influential and authoritative voice in national and international policy regarding scientific data management.
- A focal point for international, cross-disciplinary collaboration and communication on key scientific data issues.
So on this blog you will be able to find out about CODATA’s Data Policy Committee and our activities to help define an international policy agenda for scientific data; about initiatives to push the frontiers of data science (through an international workshop series, our Task Groups, Special Activities, biannual conference and our Data Science Journal); and, about our advocacy and support for data issues in international scientific programmes like Future Earth.
A notable feature of this blog will be guest posts from the CODATA community, from expert data scientists working on a range of fascinating projects. Otherwise, posts will be written by Simon Hodson, Executive Director of CODATA.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
