Fifth DASISH Newsletter, July 2013

Welcome to the fifth issue of the DASISH newsletter. We hope that you find it useful and that you will forward it to your contacts and networks.
Most of the news in this issue relate to different DASISH dissemination events that have taken place during the months of May and June on the IASSIST conference, the NODALIDA conference, and the SHARE wave 4 book launch. For these events and for future use we have produced a DASISH flyer which you can download from our website.

I would also like to draw your attention to the news item on the Founding General Assembly of CESSDA, which is good news from an ERIC perspective, and to the online launch of the First DASISH Training module.

The RDA Second Plenary Meeting this fall and the travel grants offered to experts to participate are of great interest to infrastructure communities, and to support the dissemination of these activities we have introduced a link to RDA on our website.

Enjoy your reading,
Hanne Fersøe, Editor
University of Copenhagen
