To address the growing global need for data infrastructure, the Research Data Alliance (RDA) was planned and launched in 2013 as an international, community-powered organization. It has government support from the European Community, the United States, and Australia, and it is attracting a growing number of individual and organizational members. Its mission is to build the social and technical bridges that enable data sharing. This project briefing will provide an update on its progress.
