NeDICC Research Data Management Workshop, 11 August 2015

About the workshop

Funding bodies are increasingly requiring evidence of adequate and appropriate provisions for data management and curation in new grant funding applications. At the same time, data – funded with tax payers money – is increasingly required to be openly accessible for researchers to build on and for the wider research community to benefit from.

The Network of Data & Information Curation Communities (NeDICC)(SA) in collaboration with the Digital Curation Centre (DCC)(UK) is pleased to announce a workshop on Research Data Management practices and principles. The workshop brings together important role players and experts in the field of digital curation, namely: Joy Davidson (Associate Director, Digital Curation Centre), Sarah Jones (Senior Institutional Support Officer, Digital Curation Centre), James L (Jim) Mullins (Dean of Libraries, Purdue University), Elias Makonko (Research Data Curator, HSRC), and Anwar Vahed (Head: ICT for Earth Observation (ICT4EO) & DIRISA Manager).
