RDA TIGER project launched: DANS participates maximising impact of RDA Working Groups

22 February 2023

The RDA TIGER project formally launched with a kick-off in Brussels last month. The project will support and increase the impact of Research Data Alliance (RDA) Working Groups that work towards Open Science developments and technologies, by providing a set of services which will be developed by cooperation with DANS.

RDA TIGER aims to facilitate and support RDA Working Groups, and to promote their alignment, harmonization, and standardization with global Open Science developments and technologies, in particular with European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) developments. 

DANS will contribute to RDA TIGER by building the infrastructure and framework needed to facilitate the RDA working groups. In particular, DANS will develop a new technical platform which will ensure the quality, usefulness, and sustainability of the Working Group  outputs. DANS participates in RDA TIGER together with RDA, CODATA, and the Netherlands eScience Center.
