TOMORROW at Virtual SciDatCon 2021: Closing Plenary Session ‘Organisational Interoperability is Critical for Data Interoperability’ – 28 October 2021

Tomorrow is the last day of Virtual SciDataCon 2021.  We close the conference with a plenary session.

Organisational Interoperability is Critical for Data Interoperability and Virtual SciDataCon Closing Session, Thursday 28 October, 11:00-13:00 UTC: REGISTER FOR THIS SESSION

The CODATA Decadal Programme ‘Data for the Planet: making data work for cross-domain grand challenges’ addresses part of the ISC Strategy and Action Plan. As part of the Decadal Programme, CODATA has committed to: “… work with other international data organisations and their groups (WDS, RDA Working Groups and GO FAIR Implementation Networks), with cross-domain programmes and research initiatives, with the organisations and communities that create metadata specifications and terminologies, with International Scientific Unions and other stakeholders to enable an ecosystem for FAIR data for cross domain research to be developed and implemented.” In this session, we seek to identify, discuss, and develop approaches and incentives to address known or perceived barriers to global participation, with a particular emphasis on initiatives at the organisational level. The intended outcome of the session is a set of agreed areas of action to facilitate engagement with the Decadal Programme.

The session will be followed by short closing reflections and discussions on the Virtual SciDataCon 2021 Conference.

Virtual SciDataCon 2021 is organised by CODATA and the World Data System, the two data organisations of the International Science Council – PROGRAMME AT A GLANCE – FULL PROGRAMME – please note that registration is free, but participants must register for each session they wish to attend.
