*— The World’s Largest Conference on research data to improve science and
society through data-driven discovery and innovation–*

In organizing the world’s largest conference on research data to improve
science and society through data-driven discovery and innovation,
Data Week 2022 (hereinafter referred to as IDW 2022)’
<http://www.idw2022.org/>, the Korea Institute of Science and Technology
Information (hereinafter referred to as KISTI) hosted the memorandum of
understanding (MoU) signing ceremony at the KISTI Daejeon headquarters on
March 28 with three international organisations supporting global research
data sharing and interoperability and six domestic host institutions.

IDW 2022 <https://www.idw2022.org/> is convened by the Committee on Data
(CODATA) and the World Data System (WDS) of the International Science
Council (ISC), and the Research Data Alliance (RDA). The event was
scheduled to take place in November 2021 in Korea, but postponed due to the
global pandemic. It is now taking place from June 18-23, 2022 at the Seoul
Dragon City Hotel.

IDW 2022 <https://www.idw2022.org/> provides the opportunity to discuss the
development of a data innovation ecosystem promoting social contribution
through new scientific discoveries, following the core theme of ‘data to
improve our world’. The event combines the ‘19th RDA Plenary Meeting’, an
international conference on data sharing and reuse, and ‘SciDataCon 2022’,
the scientific conference addressing the frontiers of data in research
organized by CODATA and WDS. More than 1,000 data scientists, researchers,
industry leaders, entrepreneurs, policymakers, and data stewards from
disciplines across the globe, including Korea, are expected to attend IDW
2022. It will be a hybrid event, allowing virtual, as well as in-person,

The signing ceremony highlighted the hosts of IDW 2022 and emphasized the
importance of increased cooperation for research data sharing and
utilization to build and vitalize the global research data ecosystem. From
the ISC, CODATA Executive Director Simon Hodson, and WDS Executive Director
Meredith Goins, participated online at the signing ceremony along with
Secretary General Hilary Hanahoe of the RDA. From Korea, participants
included KISTI President Jae-soo Kim of the hosting institution along with
members of the other co-hosting institutions (President Pyeong-Koo Lee of
the Korea Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources, President Jin-yong
Lee of the Korea Institute of Oriental Medicine, President Hyun-min Park of
the Korea Research Institute of Standards and Science, President Hye-ran
Suh of the National Library of Korea, and President Dong-ryeol Shin of
Sungkyunkwan University).

During the MoU ceremony, the President of KISTI Jae-soo Kim stated,
“Hosting the IDW 2022 will improve awareness for domestic research data
sharing and utilization, and expand open research data cooperation between
the global data related organisations,” and continued, “We hope to receive
many interests and participation from research data experts both here and
