Local challenges, Global solutions: achieving Open Science goals through international collabortion and cooperation
Many countries and nations across the globe are closely engaged with the Research Data Alliance (RDA), leveraging on the open solutions and global forum to effectively implement and support their national open science and open data strategies and policies. However, there is a large discrepancy in the geographical representation between the Northern and Southern hemispheres.
Many nations in the South are not taking advantage of ongoing activities and open solutions and the benefits for the researchers and data professionals on the ground. Through this session, different stakeholders will outline the importance of international cooperation to achieve local goals, demonstrate the value and importance of globally agreed and recognised research data management and open science practices and solutions in achieving SDGs and illustrate why and how RDA can support national open science and open data strategies across the globe, with a particular focus on the Global South.
