Open Science and DMP in Estonia + QA by Grant Office - 21.02.2023

On the 21st of February 2023, ELIXIR-Estonia will be organising an online data management course in English: Open Science and DMP in Estonia, which will be followed by a short QA by Estonian Research Council and Grant Office. This lecture is part of a bigger data management course package aimed at DMP writers and grant applicants.

In the first part of the course, data librarian Tiiu Tarkpea will give an overview of the Open Science movement in Estonia.
