ETH Research Data Management Summer School 2019
This ETH Summer School addresses doctoral students and postdocs within the ETH domain. It gives you an extensive overview on Research Data Management (RDM), its principles, its practical implications and on useful tools for early career scientists (doctoral students and postdocs). RDM is vital for researchers to ensure the proper organisation of research data along the entire life cycle from creation to preservation including their sharing as open data (FAIR data).
Content of the Sessions
- broad introduction to research data management and open science
- daily data management during the course of a research project
- reproducible data management and analysis
- open access to publications
- sharing and publishing research data
- outreach to researchers and the public
- long-term preservation of research data
Sessions include short presentations by various ETH professors and will be complemented by practical workshops, where you can immediately apply knowledge gained during the sessions. A marketplace at the end of the summer school offers the possibility to discuss open questions and problems concerning various topics in research data management in 1:1 consulting.
When and where?
The ETH Research Data Management Summer School 2019 takes place from 4 June to 7 June 2019 in the ETH Alumni Pavillon (external link) and addresses doctoral students and postdocs from ETH Zurich, EPFL and research institutions within the ETH domain (EAWAG, Empa, WSL, PSI).
