Registration Workshop: What to do with my agricultural research data?

A workshop on research data management

When and where does the workshop take place?

The workshop will take place on 28.06.24 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm and from 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm online

For whom is this workshop intended?

This workshop is aimed specifically at scientists of all qualification levels at the Institute of Agricultural Sciences at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg. Scientists working in similar fields and at other institutions are of course welcome to attend. No prior knowledge of research data management is required to participate in the workshop.

Which topics are discussed?

A scientist’s greatest treasure is his or her research data. In this interactive workshop, we will open this treasure chest and explore together the main principles of good research data management. You will learn why and how the careful management and publication of your data can benefit you and your future research life. To do this, we will give you an overview of key RDM concepts which are important in your field and look at what measures can help you realize the full potential of research data throughout the research project.

We will keep in mind the specifics of agrosystems research data and give you guidance on which tools and services are available to you in this field. We will give you some insights into FAIRagro’s work on a data infrastructure that can make agrosystems research data findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable (FAIR).

We will also present the RDM services and infrastructure of the Martin Luther University Halle that are available to you.
