Open Science and Data Management - Mandatory and/or Beneficial?

You are invited to participate in the seminar "Open Science and Data Management - Mandatory and/or Beneficial?" on May 5th at 11 am at Tallinn University of Technology and online via livestream. The event will cover the topic of open science and research data management, which is important for all researchers who want to ensure the reliability and transparency of their research results.

Experts from the University of Leiden, Göttingen, Sheffield, and Helsinki will speak about the principles of open science, opportunities for research data management, and best practices. Representatives from the Estonian Research Council, universities, and the DataCite Estonia Consortium will introduce Estonian perspectives and experiences.

The event program and registration link can be found on the DataCite website. The seminar is free and open to all interested parties. The event will be in English.

How to manage your data well? - Helis Academy can teach you how

What is data management? How to do it well? How to write a data management plan? If you have these questions, then Helis Academy can help you out. They provide a variety of courses and seminars about data management and data stewardship. 

On 17th and 18th of June, they will host a 2-day event, introducing their academy and Data Analysis and Data Stewardship (https://helisacademy.com/en/data-analysis-stewardship)  project with one of its aims to increase the industry readiness in Health and LifeSciences by developing training programmes in line with the knowledge and skills that are required in the industry. Helis is organizing 2 half-day events, filled with informative, interactive sessions:

Day 1: Symposium (17 June 2021)  9.30-13.00 CEST, Online You’ll learn more about the Helis project, the cross-border collaboration programme, how careers in life sciences are stimulated and the Helis domains during keynotes and interactive parallel sessions.  More info: https://helisacademy.com/en/closing-event/symposium

Day 2: Virtual company visits (18 June 2021) 8.30-13 CEST Curious to learn more about the life sciences sector in the Netherlands and Flanders? Join the virtual company visits on 18 June to find out more about the diverse job opportunities and career paths that the life sciences domains offer.  More info: https://helisacademy.com/en/closing-event/student-programme

The data analysis and stewardship pillar of Helis  is organized by DTL/ ELIXIR-NL, VIB/ELIXIR-Belgium, Maastricht University and Eindhoven University of Techonology (TU/e). 

Take part in a Data Management Practices survey

We are inviting all Estonian research community members to take part in a survey about the current data management practices in Estonia.

 

EDIT: The survey will remain open until 10th of October, 2021. 

The survey will remain open until at least the end of July (July 31st, 2021) 10th of October 2021 and should take approximately 30 minutes to fill out. We will randomly pick a couple of lucky people who have participated in the survey to win a goodie bag from us. The survey can be found here: https://survey.ut.ee/index.php/752887?lang=en 

FAIR Data Stewardship – digital data scholarship for wetlab scientists - course in the Netherlands

From 27-29 May, 2019, we will organize the first course in  Data Analysis and Stewardship theme of the Helis Academy:  

FAIR Data Stewardship – digital data scholarship for wetlab scientists

The target audience is wet-lab scientists – from industry and academia – and graduate students in the Life Sciences who wish to improve their digital scholarship on data handling. Some basic experience with programming and scripting languages like python, perl, R, matlab, etc. are an advantage, but not needed.

The course will introduce the trainees to important concepts of data stewardship. We start with a general introduction covering the data life cycle, the FAIR principles and a definition of data stewardship and data stewards. The course is also relevant for Data Stewards who are supporting the life science researchers.

 

We will pass the stages of the data life cycle in more detail in the training modules of this 3 day course.

  • On day one trainees will investigate data management plans, which types are there and how they should be used.
  • On day two the course highlights how to work with data during the research phase, explaining how to create well formatted data which helps in the second module of day two to make data interoperable already during the active research phase.
  • On day three trainees will have an in-depth at persistent identifiers, different use cases and types of identifiers. Finally we are closing the data life cycle by making data fit for sharing, archiving and publishing. 

This course is part of the Data Analysis and Stewardship theme of Helis Academy and is organised by DTL and DTL collaborators. Info about other courses in the theme of Data Analysis and Stewardship can be found on the Helis Academy website and on the Helis Academy page on the DTL website.
