Course Description

Day 1: "Introduction to Data Management Plans" is an introductory course aiming at disseminating Data Management best practices and teaching the basics of making and using Data Management Plans (DMPs) in the context of research activities. It features two introductory lectures on Research Data Management and DMPs, followed by a hands-on DMP exercise where participants will form groups to fill in a DMP for a mock research project, using Google Spreadsheets. The produced DMPs will then be reviewed and discussed.

Day 2: "Advanced Data Management Plans" is a follow-up course aiming to empower participants to make their own real Data Management Plan according to the Science Europe DMP Template (adopted by FCT) on an online platform. It features three lectures covering advanced concepts in data management, the Science Europe DMP Template, and Data Stewardship Wizard (the DMP creation tool that participants will use), followed by a hands-on session where participants create their DMP, either alone or in pairs, with assistance from the teachers. Participants are encouraged to bring their own research projects to be the object of their DMP.

Both courses will be delivered online, in real time, via Zoom.

Target Audience

Researchers, Lab Managers, PhD and Master Students, other science professionals.
