2022 Summit Buddy Program

New program for the 2022 Summit!

Is this your first RDAP Summit, or have you been away for a while and don’t know where to jump back in? Are you an experienced RDAP member interested in making new connections and sharing your wisdom?

For the virtual RDAP Summit 2022, we are organizing a buddy program where participants who are new to RDAP can be matched with someone who has been to an RDAP Summit before. The buddy program is flexible, and a great way to expand your network. We encourage buddies to communicate before and during the summit, but will leave it up to the buddies on how to navigate what works best for you! We hope the program makes the summit more inclusive, approachable, and useful for all participants.

If you are interested in being involved in the buddy program, either as a mentor or as a mentee, look for the Buddy Program questions in the Summit registration form. 

Please note that we will try our best to match you with a buddy based on your answers, but we can't guarantee we'll be able to meet your requests; it will just depend on who else signs up!


The RDAP community brings together a variety of individuals, including data managers and curators, librarians, archivists, researchers, educators, students, technologists, and data scientists from academic institutions, data centers, funding agencies, and industry who represent a wide range of STEM disciplines, social sciences, and humanities.
