Workshops

DCC workshops may combine case studies, presentations and/or interactive breakout sessions to explore some of the more complex issues affecting digital curators today.

This workshop is aimed at RDM support staff at institutions to show what can be done with DMPonline. The DCC team will introduce the core functionlity of the tool and hands-on sessions will demonstrate and let you try out key features. Hands-on exercises will demonstrate how best to profile local support and assist researchers to develop sound DMPs which align with community data standards and practice.

Please bring a laptop for the hands-on session and let us know your preferences so we can tailor this.

Data Management Plans and FAIR data are becoming commonplace in the Netherlands with both major funders - ZonMw and NWO - requiring data management and FAIR to be considered in grant applications.

This workshop will enable understanding of approaches to software curation, including its importance in enabling reproducible research. While a strong focus on data curation already exists, software curation is an emerging practice of equal importance. The workshop will present case studies to stimulate group discussion on how those engaged in facilitating reproducible research can support or actively engage with this. 

This workshop will focus on the development and implementation of workflows for digital curation. Funded by the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS), OSSArcFlow is researching and modeling ways to combine tools into digital curation workflows. Among the benefits of this work is the broadening of understanding of curation approaches within organizations, and developing community-wide views of curation processes. The workshop is intended to be a highly inclusive and interactive event.

In this workshop participants will learn about the collaborative approach taken in Australia to publish and use well curated FAIR Terrestrial ecoscience and biodiversity data and also get a chance to try some of the tools and platforms. This includes platforms such as the Australian Ecoscience Research Cloud (ecocloud) and virtual laboratories such as the Biodiversity and Climate Change Virtual Laboratory (BCCVL).

During this workshop participants will discuss and evaluate content and methods for the delivery of training programs in research data management. The workshop will be a blend of reports on best-practice and discussion, where all participants will be asked to contribute by exchanging experiences and assembling them into a structured feature map.

A key objective is to enable sufficient space and time for participants to exchange ideas and discuss all aspects of training in research data management based on experiences to date.

This workshop has two aims: 1. To trial a hands-on technical lesson for digital preservation processes, using the pedagogical teaching style of the Carpentries (carpentries.org; librarycarpentry.org); and 2. To gather feedback from participants to enhance further development of digital preservation lessons within the Carpentries framework. This trial lesson will feature digital preservation concepts tightly coupled with experimentation with open source tools.

This workshop introduces attendees to different Data Management practices throughout the research data lifecycle and the set of skills needed to accomplish the job. It also exposes them to different assisting data management tools to facilitate their jobs.

Data Management Plans (DMPs) are becoming commonplace across the globe, but opportunities are being missed to make the best use of the data and truly support researchers’ practices. What are DMPs being created for? And how can we improve the experience for all involved? This workshop will address ideas for making DMPs machine-actionable and integrating them with other tools and services to embed the DMP in existing workflows. Brainstorming and discussion sessions will give participants an opportunity to help shape the future of DMP services.
 

This course is being run in collaboration with DANS and will introduce research managers to the concept of open research (including Open Access to publications and Open Data) and its implications for their work. The key requirements for Horizon 2020 projects will be discussed with particular focus on the implications to research of the expansion of the Open Data Pilot.
