The RDAP Education and Resources team is excited to announce an upcoming webinar, “Radical collaboration in practice: Data Curation Network Update.”

The Data Curation Network projectis now officially up and running. Watch this webinar to hear about how we prepared the people, systems, and procedures in place in order to curate data sets across 9 institutions. Each dataset submitted to the Network is assigned to a curator who has the domain and/or software skills to expertly apply CURATE steps to check, understand, and recommend actions that will ensure the data are of long-term reuse value. This project update will focus on the outputs of Year 1 of our a three-year implementation phase funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. We will share lessons learned for putting radical collaboration into practice that will be of broad interest to the RDAP community.
We have been hearing through various communication channels that you want to know what’s going on with RDAP, beyond the emails we send. To bring another form of visibility to the work we are doing, we are going to host a town hall this Friday 3/22 at 2pm EST.
We plan to set up another town hall in the next couple of weeks for those who can’t make this Friday’s meeting (we know it is short notice, but we see this as a more informal way for the community to interact with the Board). Also an FYI, there will be a business meeting at RDAP 19 where the Board will present more formally on the progress we have made this year.
