RDA in Denmark

DM Forum - National Forum for Research Data Management
First wave

The Danish node will be organised as an activity within the National Forum for Research Data Management (DM Forum). DM Forum gathers key personnel from all eight Danish universities, the Royal Danish Library and the Danish National Archives. DM Forum is supported by Danish e-Infrastructure Consortium (DeIC) and Denmark’s Electronic Research Library (DEFF).  The Danish National Archives will provide project management for the node activities. The main priorities in the workplan for the Danish node are to:

Encourage and support the uptake of RDA recommendations and outputs in Denmark
Foster active engagement in RDA Working Groups and Interest Groups by Danish researchers and research support organisations
Coordinate with relevant Nordic and European organisations on RDA related results and activities
Research communities in Denmark will on the one hand gain valuable awareness of availability of RDA products, and on the other hand become encouraged to present challenges to the RDA community and collaborate with peers contribute to the solutions. Anchoring the activities in the DM Forum will ensure a broad national engagement in RDA. Additionally, the Danish node will be aligned with the national research data management activities in general as well as with the national strategies for Open Science and RDM
