This session will introduce research students and staff to Research Data Management (RDM): the practice of organising, storing, sharing and archiving your research data.
Research Data Management is vitally important for the success of a research project and is becoming increasingly important with major funding bodies, such as Research Councils UK, the Wellcome Trust and Horizon 2020.
This session will start you on the process of articulating your existing data management practices and planning good RDM strategies for your projects. It will highlight where help is available if needed.
By the end of the session you will have:
- gained a greater understanding of RDM and generic practices that go with it
- learned how to create Data Management Plans for research projects
- learned where to find help if needed.
