A workshop for institutions: FAIR Research Data Management: Basics for Chemists

Good Research Data Management (RDM) is essential to ensure that your research data is FAIR (Findable Accessible Interoperable Reusable). In this course we will take you through the basics of RDM while applying these to a chemistry context. 

We will hold the workshops at individual institutions on request. We consider it important not only to present chemistry-specific content and solutions, as we also take local conditions into account. For this purpose we work together with local research data management officers to address local specifics, requirements, offers and services in particular.

The workshops for chemists can be held online or in person, as required, and in German or English. If you are interested in a workshop being held for your institution, please contact our helpdesk via helpdesk@nfdi4chem.de and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Costs: Free

Venue: Online or in person

Duration: Flexible
