The First RDM-Days in Thuringia
A series of workshops from 18.06. to 24.06. at the four university locations in Thuringia about the topic research data management.
The first RDM-Days take place at the four university locations in Thuringia from 18th to 24th of June 2019. They are organized by the representatives of the Thuringian Research Data Management Competence Network . The network was established in October 2018 and is funded by the Thuringian Ministry of Economy, Science and Digital Society (TMWWDG) as part of the Thuringian strategy for digitization in higher education. It consists of the RDM advisory offices at the universities of Jena, Weimar, Erfurt and Ilmenau and provides its services to all Thuringian universities and colleges.
Digital research data as well as its organization, reusability and archiving are becoming increasingly more important in all scientific disciplines. The goal of research data management is to handle research data as efficiently and professionally as possible in order to keep it accessible and sustainable in the long term. To raise awareness of the topic and its many facets throughout the country, the network has launched the event series "RDM-Days".
All events in this series:
The workshop will cover the contents of the guideline on the handling of research data, which will be released soon, as well as the results of an internal survey on research data management. Furthermore, the guest speaker Dr. Reingis Hauck from the Leibniz University Hannover will present national developments of this topic with a subsequent open discussion.
In addition to a guest lecture on national and international developments in the field of research data management, the challenges and opportunities of data-intensive research on two examples of the natural and life sciences are discussed.
The workshop highlights the potentials of using digital tools and the consequent conscious use of digital research data in the field of humanities. Researchers as well as students gain a fundamental insight into the possibilities of digital methods and the requirements of data documentation and assurance.
This event addresses researchers who want to learn more about the management of research data and data infrastructures, especially in the field of engineering and research software. It is particularly suitable for professors, research group leaders and experienced scientists.
