RDMF revisited - unconference style

It’s been a while (16 months in fact!) since the DCC held an RDMF, and we’ve had a few requests from the community to provide a space for discussing challenges and sharing lessons on providing research data support.

Puit 9th April in Manchester in your calendar now. Registration will open later in the week.
