Workshop: FAIR Research Data Management: Basics for Chemists

20.04.2022 @ 9:00 - 22.04.2022 @ 15:00 CEST

Good Research Data Management (RDM) is essential to ensure that your research data is FAIR (Findable Accessible Interoperable Reusable). In this two-day course we will take you through the basics of RDM while applying these to a chemistry context. The workshop will be held in English and is open to anyone in Germany who wishes to take part. In 2022, the workshop will take place six times (see dates below). The registration for the second workshop is now open. To register, please fill out the form below.
