EUDAT summer school

From 3-7 July 2017, EUDAT is organising a Summer School to introduce early-career researchers to the principles and tools needed for careers in data science and data management. The week-long training course will be set in the stunning landscapes of Heraklion, Crete, and kindly hosted by FORTH. The course is applicable to those working with big data, as well as researchers from less data-intensive communities. In collaboration with other pan European e-Infrastructures, this intense training course will provide attendees with a better understanding of the European e-Infrastructure landscape, the different tools and services offered by them, and how they can be used to improve the quality of your research outputs.

The deadline for applications is Monday April 17th 2017, midnight CET. Further details about how to apply are available on the EUDAT website
