June 2015 Ready for the data summer challenge? Data access, management & pilots

Primary tabs

In this edition of our monthly bulletin you’ll find insights from two EUDAT partners, the Digital Curation Centre and LIBER, the main network for research libraries in Europe. They talk about data management plans and policy for data access for research and libraries. The EUDAT call for data pilots is still ongoing - find out more about the application areas!
Last but not least, we'd like to draw your attention to the big data challenge with two upcoming events focusing on climate change and data life cycle. Happy summer reading!

The Digital Curation Centre and Data Management Planning: Our Role in the EUDAT Initiative

In EUDAT, DCC will be customising the DMPonline tool for data management planning to profile the support available via the initiative. Details of existing services, such as the B2SHARE repository and B2DROP for secure data exchange, will be added to the tool to raise awareness amongst researchers when they are responding to funder requirements...

Policy and planning for data access in libraries

The idea of creating a collaborative data infrastructure that is open to all is very much in line with LIBER’s strategy.  As a representative of European research libraries within EUDAT, LIBER will lead the work for a task involving policy and planning for data access, and contribute to the investigation of environments and requirements from the library domain. Just last week, what was dubbed the biggest LIBER conference in 44 years, took place in the UK...

Time for Data Pilots

This summer is the right time to plan a Data Pilot with EUDAT! If you are part of a pan-European or multi-national research community or research infrastructure, you cannot miss this opportunity!  EUDAT offers common data services, supporting multiple research communities as well as individuals, through a geographically distributed, resilient network of 35 European organisations. These shared services and storage resources are distributed across 15 European nations and data is stored alongside some of Europe’s most powerful supercomputers. Covering both access and deposit, from informal data sharing to long-term archiving, and...

Data and Climate Change meet in Paris, but that’s not all

The next RDA Plenary Meeting will be held from 23-25 September 2015 in Paris – France. The Plenary will feature a special focus on research data for climate change while continuing to drive the adoption of the RDA group outputs that tangibly accelerate progress for global data sharing and increase data-driven innovation. There are a number of opportunities and activities taking place, a few highlights here...

4th International LSDMA Symposium on “The Challenge of Big Data in Science”, 1st October 2015, Karlsruhe, Germany

Management of scientific Big Data poses challenges at all stages of the data life cycle – acquisition, ingest, access, replication, preservation, etc. For scientific communities the data exploration – commonly considered as the 4th pillar besides experiment, theory and simulation – is of utmost importance to gain new scientific insights and knowledge. At this symposium, organized by the cross-program initiative “Large Scale Data Management and Analysis” (LSDMA) of the German Helmholtz Alliance, international experts address several aspects of Big Data...
