Edinburgh, UK (June 2017)
This meeting was designed around the needs of the community and focused on ensuring that LD4D outputs brought benefits to each member. A lively 2.5 day meeting resulted in a clear list of tasks for LD4D and a refocusing of the community away from the creation of a LD4D database toward a data portal and knowledge platform.
Rome, Italy (January 2017)
