Digital Curation 101: How to Manage Research Data

Research Councils and funding bodies are increasingly requiring evidence of adequate and appropriate provisions for data management and curation in new grant funding applications. Our free half-day workshops provide an introduction to research data management and curation, the range of activities and roles that should be considered when planning and implementing new projects, and an overview of tools that can assist with curation activities.

Request a DCC training session at your institution!

The DCC provides half-day training sessions for both researchers and research support staff. You provide the venue and the participants, we provide the trainers and the materials. To arrange a session, please get in touch.

A key goal for these workshops is to bring together different communities of practice to share their experiences and to identify where, when and how they can best cooperate to meet data curation challenges.  

Learning Objectives:  

  • understand funders' requirements for data management and sharing
  • learn how research data management and curation can safeguard research outputs and increase citations
  • identify the processes and activities involved in good practice for research data management
  • be aware of the free services and tools available 

If you've attended one of our training sessions, please take a few minutes to provide some feedback to help us improve the delivery of future sessions.
