This event has taken place

Funding bodies increasingly require plans to show that research data will be properly managed and shared, where appropriate.

This workshop will provide an introduction to data management and the range of activities and roles that should be considered when planning and implementing research projects.  Details of local support available and practical examples will also be provided.

The workshop is in cooperation with the Incremental project at Cambridge University Library.


The workshop is aimed at researchers and those who support research, for example data managers and local IT officers.

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.
