Developing Data Management Expertise in Research

Date: Tuesday 6 November 2012
Venue: Manson Lecture Theatre, LSHTM, Keppel Street, London, WC1E 7HT, UK

This half-day event explored the evolving requirements for managing and sharing research data and steps that may be taken to address these issues. It brought together speakers from several institutions to examine the motivations for maintaining research data over time, the challenges that may be encountered, and approaches that may be adopted.

During the event, the School formally launched its Research Data Management Support Service, a central service operated within the Library & Archives that will provide researchers operating across each Faculty with advice and guidance on good practice, and develop technical services that may be used to maintain research data in conformance with contractual and regulatory requirements.

An report on the event has been prepared by Sarah Jones for the DCC blog.
