Implementation of Data Management Plans & Data Stewardship in practice (2018-09-11)


Collecting, curating storing and exchange or sharing research data is a constant challenge that has become more difficult with the complete digitalisation of the modern research. Larger projects and organisations now bring into play data stewards who organise research data and support researchers in these efforts.

The FAIR principles help to assess the quality of one’s data management. In this workshop, we will present tools to help data management and stewardship as well as bring examples of how such principles of data management perform in larger studies. We will touch on ethical, legal and data protection issues as well as the limitations imposed by data owners. We will also have an open discussion on better data management from practical aspects. It aims at larger projects with considerable contributions from bioinformatics.

Target audience:

Researchers and bioinformaticians supporting researchers in making Data Management Plans.
