Vote for ideas on Research Data Spring

It’s great to see how many ideas have been submitted to the Research Data Spring already. There are already over 40 proposals that cover a wide range of research data challenges. There are only a few days left to submit your ideas – it closes on Monday 12th January - so if you think there are gaps, submit an idea now!
Perhaps more importantly, you should register and vote.
