Scientists nowadays collect ever larger amounts of data that have to be stored, interpreted and shared.

Furthermore, new guidelines and policies regarding data management are regularly issued by funding agencies, journals or academic institutions. As a result, successful research data management has become both a key skill and a major challenge for many scientists.

In collaboration with ETH Library, we conducts five consecutive workshops focusing on the various elements of research data management and the research data life cycle.
