The development of research activity entails adherence to a series of rules that seek to ensure the fair exploitation of publically funded results, so that they can reach peers and the public and/or be reused for the benefit of science and society at large and as quickly as possible. In an era of escalating capacity for big data generation, we cannot afford to waste the incredibly high amount of potentially relevant information that lost, mislocated or unshared data may hide. The recent Covid-19 crisis provides a clear example of the power of data reuse.
This 3-day workshop provides researchers with useful tools to respond to the new paradigm in handling and sharing research results, from open access to publications to research data management.
Dates and Time: 25th October, 8th November, 11th November 2021, from 10:00 to 13:30 h (all sessions)
Place: Aula Felix Serratosa
Audience: PhD researchers and Postdocs
The course has been created by IRB Barcelona with the support of experts from the Radboud University Library and the Radboudumc Technology Center Data Stewardship (RTC-DS) in the context of the ENABLECARES European project (https://enablecares.eu/open-science/)
