Demystifying Open Science and Research Data Management: A practical workshop for researchers 

Abstract: Have you ever wondered why is everyone discussing about Open Science and Research Data Management (RDM)  these days? Good Research Data Management (RDM) is crucial for reproducible and robust scientific research. Consequently, more and more funding bodies, governments, research institutions and other agencies have emphasised the value and importance of good data management and introduced policies on data management and sharing. However, it is easier said than done.
Like most researchers you might have more questions than answers about the topic. You are not alone! Come join us on the 24th at an interactive workshop where you can understand the why and how of open science and research data management in practical terms. The main aspects covered in the workshop are:

  • Why RDM and open science - a brief introduction
  • RDM essentials and practical tools for : Storage, backup, file structure & naming, data sharing and repositories
  • Winning with open science: Direct benefits for researchers and tips on implementing RDM best practices in day-to-day research activities
  • Introduction to Data Management Plans and DMPOnline
  • Information session on open access, H2020 and support available for PoliTo research community
