Digital Curation 101 Lite: How to Manage Research Data

September 10, 2010, London NOTE: this event has taken place

About the course Research Councils and funding bodies are increasingly requiring evidence of adequate and appropriate provisions for data management and curation in new grant funding applications. This one-day workshop will provide an introduction to digital 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. This workshop is being offered in cooperation with the UK Data Archive.

Audience The target audience for these workshops are researchers and those who support research activity (data managers, information specialists) with funding body data management and curation mandates to fulfil. A key goal is the integration of these communities of practice to share their experiences and to identify where, when and how they can best cooperate to meet data curation challenges.
