Konferenssin juliste

Data has both an enormous and diverse potential to change the way we work, make decisions and empower citizens. But does data really make the difference? This is the theme at the heart of the upcoming 14th Plenary of the Research Data Alliance (RDA).

Following on from the 13th US Plenary in Philadelphia, which focused on the responsibilities intrinsic to data, P14 will revolve around the massive potential of research data as a tool to improve decision making, tackle grand societal challenges, and engage citizens in the creation of knowledge and betterment of society.

Taking place 23-25 October 2019, the 14th RDA Plenary will bring together distinctive groups of experts from around the globe to share and learn together how to use data to make a positive impact on tackling complex world challenges.

The location of the event will be nature-immersed Dipoli and Otakaari 1, at Aalto University, Espoo, in Finland. The event will be made possible due to a wide group of enthusiastic organisers and sponsors among which CSC - IT Centre for Science, Aalto University, University of Helsinki, Federation of Finnish Learned Societies, Finnish Meteorological Institute and RDA Europe 4.0.
