Grants for data Experts and Early Career Researchers

Grants for data Expert and Early Career researchers to attend the 12th RDA Plenary, 5-8 November 2018, Botswana

RDA Europe continues its series of support programmes for data researchers and practitioners and is now running 2 Open Calls to facilitate participation of 7 Early Career Researchers and 5 Experts to the 12th RDA Plenary meeting in Botswana.

The second edition of International Data Week (IDW 2018) will be held on 5-8 November 2018 in Gaborone, Botswana bringing together data professionals and researchers from all disciplines and from all parts of the globe. Co-organized by the ICSU World Data System (WDS), the ICSU Committee on Data for Science and Technology (CODATA) and the Research Data Alliance (RDA), this landmark event will address the theme of ‘The Digital Frontiers of Global Science’ and will combine the 12th RDA Plenary Meeting, the biannual meeting of the research data community, and SciDataCon 2018, the scientific conference addressing the frontiers of data in research.

DRI, core partner of the RDA Europe 4.0 project, is driving the effort behind the Early Career and Expert programmes and strongly encourages you to take advantage of the two opportunities: 

  • Are you a student or/and early career professional working on research data and related sharing and exchange challenges? The Early Career support programme offers up to seven grants of maximum €1750. View all the call details and apply here 
  • The RDA Plenaries are working events built around the RDA Working Group (WG) and Interest Group (IG) meetings. If you are a mid-career or senior data professional or scientist, interested or already committed to RDA activities, you can apply for one of five grants of maximum €1800 to support your participation to the Plenary meeting. View all the call details and apply here 

The application period closes for both calls on 30 August 2018, 17:00 CEST. Applicants will be notified of the outcome on the 21 September 2018.

Preference will be given to candidates from domains under-represented in the Research Data Alliance, such as Social Sciences and Humanities.
