If you’re supporting researchers to manage and share their data, there are a few useful workshops coming up in early 2017 that may be of interest.

In January, the DCC and DANS will be running two one-day workshops in Amsterdam. On 25th January, the “Developing Research Data Management Services” workshop will introduce participants to the range of services needed, how to establish a business case, and engage researchers to ensure uptake. The following day we will be “Supporting Open Research in Horizon 2020”. This workshop will outline the European Commission’s requirements and give practical advice on how to make data open. Building on DANS and DCC experience in support the EC review of DMPs, the afternoon will focus on a practical exercise reviewing example Horizon 2020 DMPs against an evaluation cribsheet.

The IDCC conference in February in Edinburgh includes a number of workshops that will be of interest. The DCC will be co-running a workshop with US colleagues about “Building Capabilities for Research Data Infrastructure and Services”, EUDAT will be speaking about how their services support FAIR data, OpenAIRE will be profiling the services and tools they run for Open Research Data in H2020, and DANS and the 4TU.Centre for Research Data will be running a train-the-trainer version of their popular “Essentials 4 Data Support”.
