Door: Petra Ploeg | Categorie: data management plan, events, research data

In 2012, Research Support organized the meeting ‘Academic Conduct and Research Data’. Concluded that day was that good data management is fundamental for high quality research data and research excellence. This year, LIS Research Support organizes another meeting on research data: “Best Practices in Research Data Management at Tilburg University”.

The meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 19, 2013 at the Faculty Club (from 2:00 – 5:30 pm).

Central theme will be research data management. Research data management covers aspects of organizing, selecting, documenting and enriching research data. It also deals with sustainability and sharing of data and with legal requirements. Many research funders are beginning to require data management plans as part of the proposal and evaluation process.

Philip Eijlander, rector magnificus, will give the opening introduction. Guest speaker Ron Dekker, Director Institutes, Finance and Infrastructure at NWO, the Dutch national research council, will talk about research funding and data management plans. Niels van de Ven, Legal Affairs, will address copyright issues in data management. Four research groups will then present best practices in research data management. Full program is on the intranet web page Information meetings research data (TiU staff only: login intranet required).

The meeting is open for all researchers and research management staff of Tilburg University. Language: for the most part in English, some presentations will be in Dutch.
