Third RDA Europe Science Workshop “Big and Smaller Data” - RDA Europe 3

This report summarizes the outcomes of the RDA Europe 2016 Science Workshop, which was organised in collaboration with the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) at the CNRS Headquarters in Paris, France, on 19‐20 April 2016. The Workshop was organised as an open brainstorming, which provided a view of the disciplinary practices for data management and sharing in a variety of disciplines, and allowed to identify common needs and issues. The needs expressed during the Workshop support the global RDA strategy and reinforce the importance of many of the RDA activities, with specific recommendations to take into account by RDA Global and RDA Europe.
