We welcome you to this webinar organised as part of the RDA4EOSC activities aimed at supporting organisational engagement with EOSC and similar initiatives.
This webinar will focus on discussing issues related to the alignment of organisational research data management policies both internally and externally.
Researchers, data stewards, research support and IT staff, managers, policy makers and funders might have different expectations and requirements and the data policies need to provide a guiding framework that is aligned with all of the various levels in a way that enables collaboration and communication and becomes a tool of efficiency.
Fitting all the pieces together is challenging, but addressing issues of fragmentation has become a priority and many organisations are looking at developing RDM policies in a harmonised way allowing them to align internal processes and practices with other initiatives such as the EOSC and similar research commons.
To support organisations in doing that, the webinar will discuss various approaches that can be adopted, provide a set of recommendations based on the FAIRsFAIR project work on policy enhancements and reflect on the practical case of the Health Research Board in Ireland.
