The Research Data Alliance (RDA, is an international organization aiming to develop infrastructure and community activities that enable open sharing of data. The RDA operates across the globe and connects research data experts (like researchers, data stewards, librarians and funders) from a variety of disciplines, including the social sciences. This poster presentation gives an overview of the RDA and the activities that are of particular interest for the social sciences. The poster summarizes the work of the RDA ambassadorship for the social sciences that was done within the RDA Europe 4.0 project ( In particular, the results of a small assessment will be presented that summarized the RDA working groups, interest groups and outcomes, and evaluated their relevance for social science professionals. The poster will provide conference participants with an introduction to the RDA and its relevance for our field. This can then be used as a starting point to discuss ongoing and novel initiatives and future collaborations designed to enhance data sharing and open exchange.
