Bologna, November 19, 2015–  Centro Congressi CNR, via Gobetti 101

Time: 10-17

Video of the workshop

The course is addressed to researchers, research offices, librarians and to all those involved in the management of open data in research projects. Horizon 2020 the European funding program for research contemplates a pilot project on open data , at the same time a growing number of research institutions or scientific journals ask researchers to deposit  underlying data and provide data management plans.

The aim of the course is on  one hand to grasp the value of open data for a more collaborative science, on the other to provide  tools for those who are required to  technically deal with data and metadata management and preservation.

The course will be in English.
