Workshops for digital curators

Effective digital curation allows the sharing of curated data among researchers and relies upon the UK research community as a whole developing data curation and preservation skills. 

To stimulate knowledge sharing throughout the higher education sector, the DCC co-ordinates a range of advocacy services nationwide – among them, our hugely popular workshops series. 

Further your knowledge of data curation

DCC workshops may combine case studies, presentations and/or interactive breakout sessions to explore some of the more complex issues affecting digital curators today. 

Places at our workshops fill up fast, and it’s a case of first come, first served. Bookmark this page or subscribe to our RSS feed or mailing list to stay informed about forthcoming workshops – and be sure to sign up for a space quickly to avoid disappointment.
