Workshops: Developing Research Data Management Services

Workshops: Developing Research Data Management Services

25/01/2017 - 09:30

As research data management is increasingly seen as a vital component of high-quality research, academics are looking to their institutions to provide support for activities which they lack the skills and resource to deliver themselves. The responsibility of institutions to provide support is being reflected in research funder mandates more explicitly. Coupled with this is the recognition that well-managed, visible research outputs, including data, are an asset both to researchers and their institutions.
 
Through practical exercises, participants will work in groups to take a holistic view of their current or planned RDM services. They will learn how to link service design and development with national and institutional strategy, ensuring that research goals are supported whilst complying with funders’ mandates. Participants will work with tools that facilitate business planning to identify the value of RDM services, and will learn strategies to communicate these benefits to a range of stakeholder groups.
