Workshop on "Internationalization of the Armenian Science: Challenges and Solutions"

Today it is nearly impossible to conduct high-quality research and gain competitive results in science by fencing off from the international scientific community. From this point of view one of the main challenges for the Armenian scientific community is the issue of internationalization.  One of the ways to achieve this goal is by joining the Open science movement (OSM) which could not only help to boost the scientific collaboration with foreign peers but also to increase the visibility of...

Importance of long-term data preservation

There is increasing recognition of the importance of data especially as its production and volume grows at ever increasing rates. It has been observed that the volume of data now present when compared to just two years ago is many-fold larger. This leads to the difficult question of what are valuable data and what are not. Indeed, much of the data being generated is from automated systems such as consumer internet-of-things (IoT) devices, weather detection instruments, and so forth. In many case...

Event Series held 'Research Data Management in Austria'
