28 July, 2016 - The data dialogue - time to share: navigating boundaries & benefits

Time: 09:30:00 - 16:00:00

Hosted at The University of Cambridge, this is a free event aimed at Early Career Researchers. Researchers are faced throughout their careers with managing research data. Implementing best practice early on can not only help you to access the right data quickly, but also ensure that data is relevant, reusable and accessible to others, contributing further to scientific research. This unique event aims to provide Early Career Researchers from a range of disciplines with the tools and knowledge to better approach their research data needs, covering the benefits of sharing data, how we share difficult and sensitive data, gaining access to restricted, secure, or open data, and what types of repositories are available for use. Join us at The University of Cambridge to hear from key speakers from the UK’s leading Research Data centres and join a discussion amongst peers with tangible experience in accessing and managing data, sharing their own discipline-specific examples.

Location: Murray Edwards College, The University of Cambridge Huntingdon Rd , Cambridge, CB3 0DF
