Thematic workshops

National policy and support actions for research data skills - impact and experiences

This joint workshop by FAIRsFAIR and OpenAIRE aimed to discuss the role of national-level initiatives to advance skills development for research data management. 

WHEN - 28th April | 14h00-16h30 CEST

ABOUT - At European level, the emerging European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) provides impetus for skills development. However, the recent report of the EOSC Working Group on Skills & Training finds that national skills policy is usually fragmented or underdeveloped when concerning skills for research data and data-intensive research.

The workshop aimed to take stock of the national initiatives and discuss good practices, impact and ways to forward for such initiatives.

The aim is to exchange experiences, lessons learnt, and explore common challenges. To support Citizen Science, the online workshop will discuss tools, guidelines and good practices from Open Science experiences as well. Participating universities will have the opportunity to share expertise, coordinate efforts and exchange advice on services, tools and legal and ethical issues.
