An introductory webinar from OpenAIRE and EUDAT, hosted by EIFL

Event Date: 26 May 2016

Webinar: OpenAIRE and EUDAT are co-presenting this webinar which aims to introduce researchers and others to the concept of research data management (RDM).

Modern scholarship generates incredible amounts of digital information which, properly kept and shared, holds the potential to drive new research and innovation. Recognising this, funders are implementing policies for RDM and data sharing, such as the ( Horizon 2020 Open Research Data Pilot, which aims to improve access to the research data generated by European Union-funded projects.

But good data management skills are useful far beyond complying with funder commitments: well-managed data fosters good scientific practice, and sharing well-formed, well-described data increases research impact.


As well as presenting the benefits of taking an active approach to RDM – including increased speed and ease of access, efficiency (fund once, reuse many times), and improved quality and transparency of research – the webinar will advise on strategies for successful RDM, resources to help manage data effectively, choosing where to store and deposit data, the European Commission Horizon 2020 Open research Data Pilot and the basics of data management, stewardship and archiving.

At the end of the session participants will be able to:

  • Articulate the importance of RDM;
  • Set clear goals regarding data archiving and sharing (both during and after a project)
  • Understand the basic principles of data management, stewardship and archiving
  • Identify appropriate RDM tools and services

Target audience: This introductory training is for researchers, project coordinators and research administrators
