Research Data Management: Training and events

Research data management workshops and trainings

Coronavirus update! All trainings will be held online. You can still enroll trainings and we will inform you about possible cancellations.

We organise data management trainings for researchers, teachers and students at Tampere higher education community. We are focused on basic level trainings covering topics such as describing your data, data protection, data storage services and opening your data. Content of trainings and workshops can be tailored to your needs. Don't hesitate to contact us!

Basics of research data management and data protection

Where do I store my data during the research? How about, if I want to open my data to be used by other researchers? What should I take into account when describing and documenting my data? How do I take care of data protection and data security issues? In these workshop sessions, you will learn the basics of research data management and data protection

Because of diversity and variety of needs of workshop participants, we try to keep sessions interactive. So, active participation (sharing your experiences and ideas, asking questions etc.) is recommended.
