on Friday 24th April the first release of the RDA COVID-19 recommendations and guidelines have been published, and are open for your feedback and comments.
The Group was set-up at the end of March 2020 in response to a direct request from the European Commission, one of the RDA funding agencies, with 5 sub-groups focusing on essential thematic areas: Clinical, Community Participation, Epidemiology, Omics, and Social Sciences. The initial work was divided into these 5 areas as a way to both focus the conversations and provide an initial set of guidelines within a tight timeframe.
In the spirit of the RDA community and its open process, RDA is seeking feedback from the COVID-19 WG members, as well as the whole community, early and often during this process. This feedback will inform the work and will be incorporated into the sub-group discussions, and the next set of writing sprints.
All the best
