The Research Data Alliance (RDA) Third Plenary Meeting kicked off in Dublin, Ireland, earlier today. iSGTW is attending the event, which features various discussion groups and panel sessions, focusing on topics ranging from data publication and reuse to standards and discoverability. Milena Žic Fuchs, who last week told iSGTW about the barriers to data sharing that exist in the humanities, will be giving a keynote address at the event on Friday. Following this, Mark Parsons, the newly appointed secretary general of the RDA, will also chair a session. In an interview last month, he explained that the RDA is "working towards a culture change in terms of how we treat data and data providers".

Be sure to check iSGTW next week for our full roundup of the event. In the meantime, you can follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ for updates under the hashtag #RDAPlenary.
