There is a rapidly growing interest in working with open research data in Sweden, and international collaborations are becoming more and more important to make it happen. The Swedish National Data Service (SND) is therefore happy to welcome all participants to the annual IASSIST conference in Gothenburg in 2020.
As a national research data repository governed by a consortium consisting of seven Swedish universities and working in agreement with over 30 institutions, SND has the potential to reach a large number of researchers who could gain from the knowledge exchange and experiences of IASSIST.
The conference theme, “Data by Design: Building a Sustainable Data Culture”, emphasizes two core values embedded in the culture of Gothenburg and Sweden: design and sustainability. We invite you to explore these topics further, and discuss what they could mean to data communities. As a member of IASSIST, you are already part of at least one data community. Your other data communities may be across departments, within organizations, or among groups in different countries. How are these groups helping design a culture of practices around data that will persist across organizations and over time? Be sure to send in your proposals for presentations or workshops before 6 December 2019
We look forward to seeing you in Gothenburg in 2020.
