Research data management: from theory to practice

Our workshop series demonstrates how you can retain control in the Open Science environment.

In collaboration with Scientific IT Services, ETH Library is conducting three consecutive workshops, each building upon the knowledge of the previous, which focus on the various elements of research data management along the research data life cycle.
