Welcome to the biannual RDA Finland seminar! This time the theme of the get-together is "RDA and FAIR: supporting Finnish researchers".

We will give a basic introduction to RDA (Research Data Alliance) for potential new participants. After that we will focus on the recent development of FAIR and what will happen at the national scene of open science. In addition, we will hear how RDA activities are supported on the national level.
