What We’re Facing as RCD Professionals— Spend a day building intentional connections with other RCD professionals as we collectively identify and explore common challenges, experiences, and leading tools and practices of the RCD profession. We will have a large group discussion and also break into smaller groups to explore topics related to your specific Facing(s). 

Data Governance and Working with Data — If you’re an RCD professional, chances are your researchers face the challenge of managing data and keeping their data safe, secure, and FAIR. How can your organization best meet your researchers’ needs with available resources? What is the current state of the art for research data lifecycle? Join us for a day of engaging conversion and collaboration, as we work towards outlining a future resource to support secure research data lifecycles. Whether your institution is large or small, we will address issues and offer breakout groups relevant to you.
