November 18th: Research Data Management Workshop

27 October 2011

How to get the most out of your data and why it matters

Friday 18 November 2011
Room 209

What happens to data after your research projects are over?
What is the reuse potential of your data?
How can you benefit from its potential?

Research Data Management applies to all kinds of data deriving either from artefact, spatial, textual, statistical, visual, sound, or any other type of analysis.

This workshop aims to introduce researchers in the Institute of Archaeology to research data management, its importance for the future of research, the REWARD project and the Digital Curation Centre’s DMP Online tool.
