Research Data Management: from Theory to Practice

Our new workshop series shows how to keep control in an Open Science environment.

In collaboration with Scientific IT Services, ETH Library conducts 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. Register for individual workshops or for the whole series.
