The international Research Data Alliance (RDA) issued a call for organisations willing to promote adoption of existing RDA recommendations & outputs.

On the basis of the list of available recommendations the LCRDM Task Group "RDA Project Proposal" proposed to disseminate a non-technical recommendation: 23 Things - Libraries for Research Data​.​

Music sheets

Spring 2016 the internationally well-known​ jazz musician Michiel Borstlap composed his Open Boogie. Leitmotiv for open science. The composition was made on the occasion of the conference Desiging & Shaping Open Science, organised by LCRDM, RUG and Erasmus, in the slip stream of the Dutch EU presidency. One of the main points of attention of the presidency was 'open science'.  The conference ended with the Amsterdam Call for Action which led eventually to the National Plan Open Science. (The video registration of the Designing & Shaping Open Science conference can be viewed in six parts.) ​

By way of 'open' the music sheets of Borstlap's "Open Boogie" are freely available.

The Research Data Alliance is a worldwide network with 7000+ members in which researchers and data professionals meet to work on a voluntary basis in working groups on removing (often technical) barriers to data sharing.

A national working group, RDA-NL, started in 2018. The working group maintains contacts with research communities, organizes activities and distributes RDA outputs. The LCRDM is a member of this working group.
