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 Group and National Members organise many such workshops and meetings every year. CODATA science and policy workshops bring together major worldwide organizations and partners to shed more considered light on the importance of data issues and to present up-to-date research on data science.

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.
The Workshop was organized by the joint CODATA Task Group for Data At Risk and the RDA Interest Group for Data Rescue, and was hosted by NCAR (the National Center for Atmospheric Research), 3090 Center Green Drive, Boulder, CO 80307, USA.
