Science and Policy Workshops

Among the many activities through which CODATA pursues its strategic mission, organising and collaborating international workshops holds an important place.

CODATA, its Task Groups, Working Groups and National Members organise many workshops and meetings every year. CODATA science and policy workshops bring together major worldwide organizations and partners to focus on data issues and to present up-to-date research on data science.

This page provides links to some of the key events in the CODATA programme of international science and policy workshops.

A workshop on The Rescue of Data At Risk was held in Boulder, Colorado, on 8–9 September 2016, in association with International Data Week that took place the following week in nearby Denver.
