Are you taking part in the Academy of Finland’s September call, and need help with data management planning? The Data Support at the University of Helsinki organizes research data management (RDM) basics lectures and data management plan (DMP) workshops on every UH campus during autumn 2019.
You’ll find an up-to-date course schedule on our website.
About RDM lectures and DMP workshops
RDM Basics is an introductory lecture to the key concepts and best practices of research data management. We will answer some central questions on data management, such as: How to define and describe research data? How to make them openly available and where to store them safely? A RDM Basics lecture with the same content is running throughout the year.
In the DMPTuuli workshops, we will concentrate on the best practices of research data management and hands-on training of data management planning (DMP). During the workshop we will go through the general structure of a DMP and give tips on what to write to the different sections. You can work with your own DMP with the help of experts from Data Support.
Events are open for all UH researchers, postgraduate students and staff members. The primary language of the workshop will be English. Help and instructions are also available in Finnish.
Enroll to the courses at Suffeli (SAP SuccessFactors): Home > Learning > type “RDM” to see all courses available. If you have any problems with enrollment or other questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
NB! If this is the first time you are writing a DMP or otherwise new to these issues, it is recommended that you start with the RDM Basics lecture, or otherwise acquaint yourself with the basic terminology and data management planning tool DMPTuuli. Check out our Research data management web site and guide for data documentation.
