It is our pleasure to announce that the chair of the IUPESM Data Committee Marc Nyssen was elected to the CODATA Executive Committee.
CODATA is the Committee on Data of the International Science Council (ISC). CODATA exists to promote global collaboration to improve the availability and usability of data for all areas of research. CODATA supports the principle that data produced by research and susceptible to be used for research should be as open as possible and as closed as necessary. CODATA works also to advance the interoperability and the usability of such data: research data should be intelligently open or FAIR. By promoting the policy, technological and cultural changes that are essential to promote Open Science, CODATA helps advance ISC’s vision and mission of advancing science as a global public good.
Marc’s expertise and long-term activities as IUPESM Data Committee chair and an ordinary member of the CODATA lead to the recognition of his work in the field.
