We would like to dedicate this special edition of our newsletter to the results of the EUDAT Summer School organised by the EUDAT Training Team, from 3 to 7 July, in Crete.
The EUDAT Summer School, kindly hosted by the Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas (FORTH), welcomed a total of 39 participants(around 70 applications were received!) comprising Master and PhD students and researchers coming from all over the world and working in different disciplines, spanning from astronomy, seismology, meteorology, natural sciences and many other fields.
The participants joined the school with the intent to learn more about the best practices of research data management as well as how to write a data management plan, the FAIR Data Principles, Open Data and many other crucial topics. The training on the full data lifecycle was also the perfect framework to invite attendees to discover the EUDAT services and actively use them - some participants were already familiar with them while others were completely new to the portfolio of tools available (Click here to download the Summer School Training Material).
The trainers (see full list of trainers) guided the students on a 5-day journey through the universe of data, including hands-on sessions and 1-to-1 and Q&A sessions. Throughout the school, students were invited to provide feedback on their experience with the EUDAT services, which lead to very useful suggestions and debates. All collected comments and suggestions are now being evaluated by the EUDAT team.
The first reports from the participants’ evaluation forms show a score of 4.5/5, meaning that the presented content and the organisation were extremely appreciated.
