 Date: 2013-10-25  Page Views:

Mr. Peter Wittenburg and Mr. Leif Laaksonen from Steering Committee of Research Data Alliance (RDA) and Mr. Herman Stehouwer from Secretariat of RDA visited the Institute of Remote Sensing and Digital Earth (RADI) of CAS on October 23.

RADI Director-General Guo Huadong expressed his welcome to the RDA delegation, and hoped that this visit would strengthen both parties' understanding about each other and lay a foundation for future cooperation and exchanges. Guo Huadong also invited, as President of Committee on Data for Science and Technology (CODATA), the representatives of RDA to attend 2014 Scientific Data Conference hosted by CODATA. Peter Wittenburg and Leif Laaksonen gave an introduction to the European Data Infrastructure (EUDAT) project, Horizon 2020, and RDA. The RDA delegation hoped that the Chinese scientists could give their support to the development of RDA and further strengthen exchanges and cooperation in the field of research data. Both sides also had an in-depth discussion about the issues like big data.

As a data-related international organization jointly founded by three research funding organizations in Australia, the European Commission and the USA in August, 2012, RDA is devoted to speeding up global data-driven innovation and discovery, facilitating sharing and exchange of research data in the world, strengthening recycling and development of data, and perfecting the global data standard. RDA carries out international cooperation and research in each field of study through its working groups and interest groups in order to solve such hot data issues as data infrastructure construction, policy, management and standardization.

                                                              Both sides exchanged ideas.
