> The RDA Europe Ambassadors programme offers up to six grants of a maximum
> of ?7,000, targeting distinguished and well-connected domain experts who
> can develop a two-way communication and engagement vector: on one hand by
> disseminating, globally, RDA outputs and perspectives with data
> practitioners active in their specific domain of expertise, encouraging
> them to join the RDA community and become contributors and adopters of RDA
> outputs; and on the other hand providing insight and practical contribution
> to RDA groups and activities from the domain community and organisations
> they represent.
> The Ambassador Role ? Expectations and Opportunities
> An RDA Europe Ambassador is a recognised domain expert and skilled
> communicator, serving as conduit between RDA, organisations, and the wider
> domain specific communities the Ambassador belongs to.
> The ambassadorial work will be carried out according to a detailed
> workplan that demonstrates impact for domain specific community as well as
> RDA. The mandate as Ambassador will start upon the confirmed successful
> selection and appointment and will be supported for the full duration of
> the RDA Europe 4.0 project (ending 31 May 2020), ideally beyond that.
> The benefits of becoming an RDA Europe Ambassador
> There are multiple benefits to becoming an RDA Europe Ambassador. The
> programme is designed to help discipline experts grow their network and
> collaborate with like-minded people and organisations, while increase the
> impact of their work for professional growth and recognition.
> RDA Europe is committed to provide you both financial and operational
> support for the ambassadorial work, and the official acknowledgement of the
> role and contributions.

> criteria and the financial support, please visit
