Research Data Management has been recognized as a central part of “Good Scientific Practice” already many years ago. In 2007 the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) published recommendations that data from publicly funded research has to become publicly available (1). This was followed by a series of publications on the international and national level that emphasize the value of data sharing and publication for innovation and economy. The ability to compare and integrate research data will not only fuel individual research projects but is considered to be a cornerstone to address broad questions in health and disease management and global change.

The vision: scientists across disciplines have easy access to research data and are able to share it across borders. 

The goal: raise awareness for the importance of proper research data management in general, and to provide a practical toolbox for the acquisition, curation, documentation, archiving and publication of research data following the FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Re-usable) data principles (2).

Target group: early career scientists like PhD students and Postdocs, but for sure we also welcome interested PIs.

Participation fee: 100 Euro including taxes.
