  • August: Disciplinary data 
  • September: Sustainable development and responsible research 
  • October: International Data Week— A Festival of Data

Aligned with the 10th anniversary schedule, a virtual workshop will take place each month to bring RDA Working groups, Interest groups and Communities of Practice with a similar focus together to discuss the future of the research data management themes within the RDA community over the next five years.  
The RDA community and wider research data management communities are welcome to contribute to the 10th anniversary celebrations.
