RDA/US and University of Michigan ICPSR Sign MOU for Academic and Research Cooperation

RDA/US and the University of Michigan Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) recently signed a memorandum of understanding, agreeing to work together to exchange information and jointly sponsor events and discussions that contribute to the missions of both organizations, and culminate in one or more joint mutually beneficial activities in the form of joint sessions, conferences, or other appropriate events. 

ICPSR advances and expands social and behavioral research, acting as a global leader in data stewardship and providing rich data resources and responsive educational opportunities.

As part of this MOU, ICPSR will engage and serve as representative of a broader informal group of domain repositories that are providing important stewardship options to the data sharing community.  RDA/US and ICPSR will also collaborate together with the goal of encouraging engagement of students and early career professionals and explore joint sponsorship of events and community discussions that build the RDA and domain repositories community through the development, adoption, and exchange of common infrastructure as well as the development of projects that tackle issues related to domain repositories.
