Research Data Management

Research Data Management

Digital research data and its management are among the most challenging issues that scientists have to deal with during their research process. Their organisation, publication, archiving and re-use are becoming increasingly important in science in the digital age.

This workshop will look at the most important aspects of research data management:

  • Research data lifecycle
  • Resesarch data policies
  • Data Management Plan (DMP)
  • Structuring data
  • Documentation
  • Storage and backup
  • Long-term archiving
  • Access security
  • Publication of research data
  • Re-use of research data
  • Legal aspects.

The units are accompanied by practical exercises through which the newly gained knowledge can be consolidated and transferred to own use cases. In the process, participants learn about useful tools and platforms for working effectively with their data.
