The next Research Data Management Forum, the seventh in the series, is set to tackle the challenging theme of how best to incentivise researchers so that they will be motivated to manage and share their data.

A range of perspectives is to be presented and explored, from the role of the funder to that of institutions, and not forgetting the experiences of individual researchers. Despite the publication of mandates, on both sides of the Atlantic, this remains a highly charged debate and we have assembled a particularly well experienced cadre of presenters to inform and provoke discussion, including EPSRC's Ben Ryan, Rob Procter from MeRC and Cameron Neylon, senior scientist at STFC. NERC's Mark Thorley will give the keynote on enablers and barriers to sharing.

RDMF7 will take place at the University of Warwick and starts late afternoon on Wednesday 2nd November, concluding twenty-four hours later.
