*Apologies for cross-posting*

We wanted to highlight a new opportunity offered by the RDA Europe 4.0 project http://grants.rd-alliance.org . A new Open Call for Ambassadors has just been launched.  Find out more below about the programme and how to apply.

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.

How to apply?

To find out more details about the programme, the evaluation and selection criteria and the financial support, please visit https://grants.rd-alliance.org/OpenCalls/call-ambassadors

Interested candidates are invited to complete the online application form by 5 December 2018, 17:00 CET. All candidates will be notified of the outcome of their application no later than the 15 January 2019.

Please don?t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

We see great potential in the Ambassadors programme and are open to suggestions from your side on how to make the most of it.

Many thanks and best regards,


on behalf of the RDA EU Grants Committee
