The Research Data Alliance will hold its Fourth Plenary Meeting from 22 - 24 September 2014 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
We are pleased to invite you to the 2nd National eScience Symposium, showcasing some of the best data-driven and computing-intensive scientific research being undertaken around the country.
On 24 and 25 June 2014 the first of hopefully a long series of Bring Your Own Data (BYOD) parties took place in the context of the ELIXIR pilot for a broader data FAIRport. The BYOD workshops are conceived as a low barrier approach to get data owners acquainted with the possibilities opened by 'functionally interlinking' their data with other important datasets.
