Introductory workshop on Research Data Management, Open Science, and the FAIR data principles

Course instructors: Cora Assmann, Justine Vandendorpe, Luiz Gadelha et al.
Dates: 15./16. August 2022, 9:30am-12:30pm CEST
Location: online

This training workshop is intended for an audience of all-qualification-level researchers in microbiota research who are interested in being introduced to best practices in Research Data Management (RDM). During the workshop, we will first cover fundamental concepts in RDM such as research data, metadata and the FAIR data principles. We will then continue by following the research data lifecycle, starting from planning a research project and ending with searching for and reusing data. We will end the workshop by discussing legal issues such as privacy issues and licenses. Throughout the workshop, we will include examples from microbiota research and, where relevant, the very first results of the German National Research Data Infrastructure for Microbiota Research (NFDI4Microbiota).

Topics to be addressed will include:

  • Research data life cycle
  • Metadata & metadata standards
  • FAIR data principles
  • Data Management Plans
  • Electronic Lab Notebooks
  • Data sharing & publishing
  • Open Science & Open Data
  • Good Scientific Practice (GSP)
  • Policies & guidelines on managing research data
  • Legal issues
