If you would like to further the awareness of good Research Data Management, we offer workshops given in person at your institution. Here, we work together with your local research data managers to address local specifics, requirements, offers and services in addition to the basics of RDM. These workshops are normally planned for two days (5-6 hours per day) but can be changed as required. If you are interested, please contact us via
