Register now to the OpenAIRE/EUDAT webinar “How to write a Data Management Plan”: Thursday 7 July 2016 @11 am CEST

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...

EUDAT ... its all about research data management!

Mark the first week of February 2016 in your agenda! If you are involved or interested in research data management issues you must come to Rome to learn more about the EUDAT services through intensive training sessions, understand different use cases coming from a range of research infrastructures, communities and organizations from across Europe and find out more about the next EUDAT call for data pilots! 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.

The European Open Science Cloud for Research

Today, EUDAT together with four other leading European initiatives, LIBER, OpenAIRE, GÉANT 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.
