Workshop on “Research Data – Management, Infrastructures, and Applications”

Aims of the Workshop

Digital data are the basis of nearly all scientific research. The increasing amount and complexity of scientific data pose challenges to keeping data organized, documented, and available for verification of research and new analyses leading to new insights. The workshop will address various aspects of research data management (RDM) to guide you through this field.

The workshop is divided into two parts. The first part will be a general presentation of RDM topics. The second part will be a “classroom” in which concrete problems, applications and possible solutions will be discussed.

Why Attend the Workshop?

Research data management has become much more important in recent years. Now, you must think about RDM more and more in research. Data management plans (DMPs) have become indispensable for third-party funding applications, especially at the European Commission. Policies for Good Scientific Practice also increasingly oblige RDM. At least, you should think about it, because the re-use data, at least for yourself, but also others, will come in the future. The acceptance of data as a separate publication is likely to increase in the future as well. And “fits somehow” has never won a Nobel Prize. RDM helps with these questions. This workshop support you to start and application with RDM.
