Because good research needs good data

EUDAT data management summer school

03-07 July 2017 |

From 3-7 July 2017, EUDAT is organising a Summer School to introduce early-career researchers to the principles and tools needed for careers in data science and data management. The week-long training course will be set in the stunning landscapes of Heraklion, Crete, and kindly hosted by FORTH. The course is applicable to those working with big data, as well as researchers from less data-intensive communities. In collaboration with other pan European e-Infrastructures, this intense training course will provide attendees with a better understanding of the European e-Infrastructure landscape, the different tools and services offered by them, and how they can be used to improve the quality of your research outputs.

The focus of the training is on data management and the EUDAT services. They will demonstrate how these services, as well as services provided by other e-infrastructures, can be used throughout the data lifecycle. They will illustrate established research processes from different communities and how they are enabled with these services. Attendees will understand how the international e-infrastructures, which originate in different fields of research, are building blocks to allow a more integrated solution to meet their needs. Attendees are expected to actively explore data services; we will provide some individual guidance.

The target audience is primarily early-career researchers interested in furthering their careers in the fields of data management, data science or digital preservation. These researchers may come from any research community. Data managers interested in the integration of EUDAT solutions are also invited to apply to attend.

A draft programme is available on the EUDAT website
