EUDAT Summer School for data scientists and data management scientists 3-7 July 2017


From 3-7 July 2017, EUDAT is organizing a Summer School, which will take place in the stunning setting of Heraklion, Crete, thanks to the generous support of of the Information Systems Laboratory (ISL) and Institute of Computer Science (ICS) of the Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas (FORTH). 

The school aims to introduce early-career researchers to the principles and tools needed for careers in data intensive science and data management, and is applicable to those working with big data, as well as researchers from less data-intensive communities. In collaboration with other pan European e-Infrastructures, this intense training course will provide attendees with a better understanding of the European e-Infrastructure landscape, the different tools and services offered by them, and how they can be used to improve the quality of your research outputs.


The focus: Data Management & EUDAT services

The focus of this Summer School is on Data Management and using EUDAT data services. We will demonstrate how these services, as well as services provided by other e-infrastructures, can be used throughout the Data Lifecycle. Expert trainers will illustrate established research processes from different communities and how they are enabled with these services. Attendees will understand how the international e-infrastructures, which originate in different fields of research, are building blocks to allow a more integrated solution to meet their needs. Attendees are expected to actively explore data services with trainers providing some individual guidance.
Attendees at the summer school will be able to answer the following questions by the end of the course:
  •  “I am a researcher and would like to know which services could help me during different phases of my research, and under which conditions I can use the services.”
  • “As a scientist on a data intensive project, I need to understand how to make use of e-infrastructures for the analysis, curation and provenance of my results, and how to publish the data to make it accessible for other researchers.”
  • “There are so many data services around; how can I set up and carry out my data management?”

The topics covered by the Summer School are:
  • The Research Data Lifecycle
  • The FAIR Data Concept
  • Writing a Data Management Plan
  • The EUDAT Service Suite Overview
  • High Performance Computing (HPC) Programming Models
  • Using the EGI Federated Cloud for Data Analysis
  • Linking HPC to Data Management
  • Open Data and Cross-disciplinary Research
  • Long Term Data Curation

Early-career Data Scientists and Data Managers should apply:

The target audience is primarily early-career researchers interested in furthering their careers in the fields of data management, data science or digital preservation. These researchers may come from any research community. Data managers interested in the integration of EUDAT solutions are also invited to apply.
How to apply?

The application is closed.
