The RDAP Education and Resources team is excited to announce an upcoming webinar, "Radical collaboration in practice: Data Curation Network Update."

On behalf of the DCN team, presenters include:

*         Lisa Johnston (U of Minnesota),

*         Hoa Luong (U of Illinois), and

*         Liza Coburn (U of Minnesota)

The Data Curation Network project is now officially up and running. Watch this webinar to hear about how we prepared the people, systems, and procedures in place in order to curate data sets across 9 institutions. Each dataset submitted to the Network is assigned to a curator who has the domain and/or software skills to expertly apply CURATE steps to check, understand, and recommend actions that will ensure the data are of long-term reuse value. This project update will focus on the outputs of Year 1 of our a three-year implementation phase funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. We will share lessons learned for putting radical collaboration into practice that will be of broad interest to the RDAP community.

The webinar is free. For more info and to register, go to
