As several research funders are carrying out (Open) Data Pilots, projects and researchers are increasingly required to deliver a Data Management Plan or DMP. The DMP is a useful instrument for researchers to reflect on and communicate about the way they will deal with their data. It prompts them to think about how they will generate, analyse and share data during their research project and afterwards. In this webinar Sarah Jones (DCC) and Marjan Grootveld (DANS) will talk you...
In this special edition of our monthly bulletin youâ€™ll find news of EUDATâ€™s involvement in the Digital Infrastructure for Research 2016 event in Krakow. Find out how you can be a part of this fantastic event and submit your own workshops and presentations covering many subject areas. Trying to sum up research data management in 2 minutes is difficult, but with help from the EUDAT community we have produced a fantastic 2 minute video for you to watch and enjoy.
There is a growing international consensus on the need to preserve and share research data sets in a manner that maximises their long-term value. EUDAT is striving to enable European researchers from any research discipline to manage their data in a trustworthy environment. Heiko Tjalsma (DANS), EUDAT task leader on â€śTrust and Certificationâ€ť will be presenting a webinar for parties interested in learning more about certifying data repository services concentrating on European framework of certification levels for data repositories and the Data Seal of Approval. Donâ€™t miss this great chance to learn more about one of the hot topics surrounding data management!
In this edition of our monthly bulletin youâ€™ll find all the take aways of the European Open Science Cloud workshop, jointly organised by EUDAT, LIBER, OPENAIRE, GĂ‰ANT & EGI on 5th February 2016 in Rome.

Understand how e-infrastructures will play a major role in realizing the objectives of the Digital Single Market through the statement by Dr Kimmo Koski on Open infrastructures.
On the day when COP21, the global Climate Change Conference starts in Paris, ICOS (Integrated Carbon Observation System) and LTER Europe (European Long-Term Ecosystem Research Network) share why they are integrating EUDAT services in their infrastructures. These collaboration activities will be of paramount importance to accurately monitor the environmental changes across the globe over the coming decades.
Today, EUDAT together with four other leading European initiatives, LIBER, OpenAIRE, GĂ‰ANT and EGI share their joint vision for the European Open Science Cloud for Research. This vision includes eight elements of success for a concrete contribution to the Digital Single Market.
This month also marked the end of the first successful EUDAT Call for Data Pilots with 24 applications from a broad range of European research infrastructures, communities and organizations. These pilots are from disciplines as diverse as earth and environmental sciences, biomedical and life sciences, social sciences and humanities, physical sciences and engineering.
ENES, from the climate change domain, and VPH covering medical and clinical research tell us why EUDAT is fundamental for their work. Want to know more about EUDAT? Meet us in Bari next week at the EGI Community Forum 2015.
