NFDI4Chem RDM Workshop in Liverpool, UK

Research Data Management is not just a national effort. The lack of data publication is an issue researchers face from all around the globe. Therefore, it is important that we grow our international network, see different points of views so that the tools, solutions, and standards we develop apply and are accepted internationally.

In the spirit of international cooperation, NFDI4Chem held a 1-day online crash-course on research data management in Chemistry at the University of Liverpool (United Kingdom) in July. Here, we worked together with the local research data management representatives to create a bespoke workshop for Liverpool which would clearly highlight to the participants the local representatives, tools, resources, and regulations for research data management. The workshop was very well received by those who took part. For us it was also fascinating to gain a deeper insight into funder requirements with respect to research data management from a non-German perspective.
