Module 5 - Data Management

Module Description

Managing research data effectively and efficiently is crucial for the success of any research project. In the modern eScience ecosystem, enabling optimal (re)use of data is a major challenge. This webinar will show that the best approach to managing data is to be as open and FAIR as possible. We will explore the FAIR principles in detail and highlight best practices, tools, and tips for implementing FAIR Data. We will also look at how to set up and implement a Data Management Plan (DMP) according to the FAIR principles.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the workflows and ethics of data management and data protection
  • Identify workflows for your data and how to implement a data management plan
  • Apply a data management plan in your research and make your data open/FAIR
