Because good research needs good data

External Events

RDAP15 offers attendees the unique chance to interact with and learn from practitioners and researchers working in a variety of fields on research data management, access, and preservation issues. The summit provides a forum for reaching across disciplines and institutions to work on common solutions to issues surrounding research data management. Participants will have multiple opportunities to expand professional networks and acquire practical knowledge and skills that can be applied to their own work and projects.

This conference, co-hosted by SPARC and COAR, will address some of the important challenges facing our libraries as we attempt to re-define our roles in an age of constant flux.

It doesn't matter if you're a seasoned VIVO aficionado or someone who's just begun to learn about VIVO - there will be something of interest for everyone at the event and the i-Fest is a wonderful way to meet other people who are part of VIVO's open-source community.
