Digital curation events

The DCC hosts a variety of conferences, workshops, lectures and other events throughout the year to help promote digital curation across the UK research community – and beyond. 

Individuals from a wide range of backgrounds and disciplines are brought together at our events by a shared commitment to data curation and preservation. 

You too can enjoy the chance to improve your awareness of current research activity and explore the possibility of collaborating on the development of digital curation tools, resources and best practice.

Because the DCC has an international presence, our events also give you the opportunity to compare notes on digital data curation initiatives with research teams based both at home and abroad.
