This session will introduce best practices around data management and data sharing, and will highlight the support and tools available at UCL. The following will be discussed:

•         How good data management can help taking care of your research sources (whether digital or not)

•         Best practices from the planning stage to the end of your project

•         The data management expectations of UCL and key research funders (with a focus on AHRC, ESRC, ERC & Horizon 2020)

•         Services and support available for all UCL researchers to manage their sources and to comply with research data policies.
