RDA Plenary Meeting

Together with my team of Data Agents working in the Research Data Management Support Initiative at Aalto University, we presented our work and activities at the Research Data Alliance’s 14th Plenary Meeting taking place from 23-25 October 2019 in Helsinki. It is great to share our efforts and achievements in managing research data better and making data open for everyone!

The poster is available in the Zenodo repository. Please take a look at our presentation, titled “Illustration of Data Agents network of Aalto University: Data Agents: How to put research data management into practice?”.
