3rd LEARN Workshop: Make research data management policies work

The 3rd LEARN workshop Make research data management policies work,  that will be held in Helsinki the 28th of June the day before the start of the Annual LIBER Conference.

This is the third of five international workshops within the EU-funded project, LEARN (LEaders Activating Research Networks), which addresses the challenges of existing, disparate e-infrastructures and the global needs of research data. LEARN workshops are designed to encourage all stakeholders - research funders, organisations and decision makers, researchers, library and IT staff - to explore their roles and responsibilities in the process of developing policies for Research Data Management. The workshop in Helsinki will present the work carried out by the project and provide a forum for discussion and the exchange of advice, ideas and views in the effective implementation of RDM policies.

As your host of the 3rd LEARN Workshop, LIBER would very much welcome your participation in this meeting which will be split into two sessions. The morning session will be devoted to lectures by keynote speakers, whereas the afternoon session will be devoted to breakout groups, where best practices and case studies will be identified and discussed. It will be closed with a round table with several expert panellists who will discuss on the requirements for putting RDM policies in practice.

Preliminary programme at our website, and online registration (the event is free).
