Open research data: sharing research and open science

How valuable is data sharing in the context of Open Science? How can I make  my research and my data open? How can I properly manage datasets? How can I fulfill a Data Management Plan?

On November 18th and 19th a two day workshop at the CNR – Research Area of Bologna Congress Center  will attempt to give answers to these  and  to other questions related to open science and open research data.

Open research data: creating bridges for Open Science (November 18th) specifically addressed to professors and  young researchers features the participation of Peter Murray-Rust, professor emeritus of chemistry at Cambridge University, active supporter of Open Science and creator of tools developed to use open data, and  Erin McKiernan, young researcher in neuroscience who made of  “openess”  the paradigm of her research.
Other presentations and discussion will  follow on culture of sharing and open science. The afternoon will be devoted to  an “hands on session” on how to make Open Access and Open Science in practice, followed by an ample session of Q&A.

On the second day, Data Management Plans: principles and practice  (November 19th)  is addressed to  the technical staff involved in  data sets management and curation (data scientists, data librarians, research office ). Peter Murray-Rust and Erin McKiernan will introduce  the topics of the day, followed by  a practical four hour session  held by Sarah Jones from the Digital Curation Centre in Glasgow, one of the most prestigious institution on data management and curation worldwide.
