Research Data Management 101

This course provides PhD candidates with the essential knowledge and the core skills to manage research data according to best practice. Learners will be able to integrate good data management practices within their workflows from the beginning of their projects. The application of this knowledge to their research will allow them to reflect on how to work efficiently and in a reproducible manner with their research data, while complying with funders and institutional requirements.

This course is particularly useful for PhD Candidates in their first year who require a hands-on introduction to Research Data Management (RDM) and Data Management Plans (DMPs). You do not need any prior knowledge to take this course.
