Without any exception, every research activity includes the handling of data. Either you re-use existing data or you create new one. However, what are research data, how do you take care of them, and what are the funder requirements? Good Research Data management ensures replicability and integrity, increases research efficiency, allows for more visibility, enhances collaboration, saves resources over time, guarantees data security, and minimizes data loss. At the end of this course, you will:
• Have an overview of what is research data and Data Management;
• Be aware of significant IT, ethical, legal (including TechTransfer) and funding issues related to Data Management;
• Know different tools to support their Research Data Management at IST Austria (RDMO and IST REx);
• Know how to effectively create and implement a Research Data Management Plan, including best practice examples;
• Gain hands-on experience by creating a Research Data Management Plan.
Participants from all disciplines and levels are welcome.
