ERC Workshop on Research Data Management and Sharing

I am very happy to say that the European Research Council has invited the DigiPal project to be presented at a two-day workshop on Research Data Management and Sharing to be held in Brussels this September (2014). We have been selected as one of nine projects from across the whole ERC, just three from the Social Sciences and Humanities, because we can provide 'many interesting data-related aspects for discussion with other grantees, with members of the ERC Scientific Council and colleagues from the ERCEA, with data experts and policy makers'; these aspects include, among other things, our 'solutions and good practice examples'. The workshop is by invitation only but it is possible to request an invitation: details are in the ERC circular which is pasted in below. I personally think this is a real honour and is testimony to the outstanding work done by the whole DigiPal team, so many congratulations and thanks to them all. I hope also to see some strong representation from the Humanities at this workshop, so do request an invitation if you are interested at all.

ERC Workshop on Research Data Management and Sharing

18 – 19 September 2014, Covent Garden, Brussels

On 18–19 September 2014, the European Research Council Executive Agency (ERCEA) in collaboration with the ERC Scientific Council's Working Group on Open Access is organising a workshop on Research Data Management and Sharing.

During this 2-day event different aspects of this important topic will be explored together with ERC grantees and other researchers, with representatives from funding bodies, universities and other research performers, with publishers, scientific societies, policy makers and other interested parties.

The workshop is organised around a number of interactive sessions with lots of room for discussion. The ultimate aim is to generate a number of concrete recommendations to relevant stakeholders on how to encourage and support good data management practices and facilitate the sharing of research data.

The workshop is by invitation only. A draft programme and information on how to request an invitation are available on the ERC website, where more details about the programme will be made available soon.
