Training and reference materials

In an effort to build capacity and to improve the sustainability of current and emerging curation training materials, the DCC seeks to identify and promote training materials available to those charged with developing and/or delivering RDM training within their institutions. The DCC is keen to cooperate with other training providers to share knowledge and resources and to reduce duplication of effort across the sector.
