Professor Francine Berman, the U.S. lead of the global Research Data Alliance, will deliver a UQ seminar on building a sustainable ecosystem for data-driven research.
She will discuss sustainability, infrastructure and data, and explore the opportunities and challenges of creating a viable ecosystem for the data on which current and future research and innovation increasingly depend.
Prof. Berman’s career has involved many accomplishments and she is regarded as a leader in digital data preservation and cyber-infrastructure.
As well as being the US Chair of RDA, a community-driven international organisation created to accelerate research data sharing worldwide, US President Obama nominated her last year to serve on the National Council on the Humanities, which the US Senate confirmed.
RCC is hosting Prof. Berman's UQ visit. All are welcome to attend this free seminar, and registering is not required. More info
