Content workshop

This workshop is designed for researchers that have already obtained their PhD or any other staff members at the UMCG actively working in research. Therefore, it is expected that participants already have basic knowledge of research data and data management. While an introduction to the meaning and importance of research data management will be provided, this will not be the focus of the workshop.

The aim of this workshop is to provide the basic tools needed to implement a good data management plan within the UMCG, offering an overview of the key aspects to be aware of when designing your project and the existing tools and resources available at the UMCG. It will also give an introduction to the meaning and importance of research data management. Moreover, it will outline the importance of a good data management plan, how to make one and where you can get help.


Be aware that the workshop will not be a technical or in-depth course on how to use the existing databases or tool infrastructure(s), there are other specific courses provided by the UMCG for that. Instead, it is meant to provide awareness on the relevance of good data management within the research context, and to alert you to the key aspects to consider during your project and at each step of the data management plan.

The workshop is expected to be a highly interactive platform where the participants can share their thoughts or doubts about research data management and find solutions to their specific questions.
