Training for research students

image by Jørgen Stamp –

This morning I delivered a training session to 54 full and part-time research students about Research Data Management. The students came from a wide range of academic disciplines, which made for an interesting session.

Topics covered in the session included the importance of data sharing, how to manage data during your project and why you should write a data management plan. There was a lot of lively discussion particularly around avoiding data security breaches and overcoming barriers to sharing data.

You can download the slides from the session by clicking here, or they are also available on the Research Data Management intranet site.

If you attended the session and have any follow-up questions or comments, please email
