The following workshop is taking place tomorrow. Here’s the ‘All staff message’ inviting researchers to attend.

Staff from the Digital Curation Centre will be leading a workshop this Thursday, focused on ‘data management planning’ which is increasingly required by funding bodies. Researchers and research students are welcome to attend.

Funding bodies increasingly require grant-holders to develop and implement Data Management and Sharing Plans (DMPs). Plans typically state what data will be created and how, and outline the plans for sharing and preservation, noting what is appropriate given the nature of the data and any restrictions that may need to be applied.

This workshop will provide an overview of research data management and the role of data management planning. There are a small number of places available for researchers to attend.

Please contact Joss Winn if you wish to attend.
