The workshop focuses on Research Data Management in an open environment.

We shall adress both institutional issues – the importance of having clear policies in place – and technical ones like Data Management Plan and FAIR metadata to booster data reuse.

We shall learn how to use tools, tricks and tips to ensure our data an “intelligent openness”.
