RDA OPEN CALL ANNOUNCED: domain ambassadors #2

August 16, 2022

We want to develop a European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) whose technical specificities are receptive and responsive to the needs and realities of various domain-specific research communities in the EU. In pursuit of this overarching objective, the Research Data Alliance (RDA) is launching a series of open calls throughout the EOSC Future project.

This is the second of two EOSC Future Domain Ambassadors Open Calls offering grants to recognised domain experts and skilled communicators who can work to promote data sharing and open science practices among their disciplines. Grants awarded are up to a maximum of €10.000,00 per grant.

We’re looking for:

  • expertise in research infrastructures in a particular scientific domain
  • an understanding of the European data infrastructure landscape
  • strong communication skills
  • prior involvement in RDA activities and a commitment to RDA outputs.

Successful proposals will develop a detailed plan for raising awareness and access to EOSC within their research communities, identifying:

  • community-related, domain-specific outreach activities
  • benefits of EOSC in a disciplinary context
  • solutions to potential engagement barriers.

who can apply?

We welcome applications from persons or groups committed to FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) data and other principles that RDA holds dear. The call is open to a wide variety of applicants from different domains, including junior or senior researchers, mid-career data professionals and data scientists. Note: This call is not open to members of the EOSC Future consortium or applicants outside of EU Member States and Associated Countries.

Further criteria and conditions are detailed on the EOSC Future Grants Platform.


Applications are open until 15 September 2022, 16.00 CEST, via the EOSC Future Grants Platform.
