Workshop provides basics of FAIR RDM on 6 and 8 July 2022

You are a scientist working in chemistry and want to make FAIR Research Data Management (RDM) your second nature?

Ensuring that our research data is FAIR (Findable Accessible Interoperable Reusable) is an increasingly important part of our daily research routine. In collaboration with NFDI4Chem, HeFDI offers a two-day course on the basics of RDM while applying these to a chemistry context. 

These basic concepts, principles, and more will not only be taught theoretically, but with additional interactive elements involving individual and group work.

The workshop's topics are

  • The Basics of RDM: FAIR, Data Life Cycle, Policies and more
  • Data Quality & Documentation: Metadata, Standards, Controlled Vocabulary, InChI, SMILES, Naming Conventions and more
  • Electronic Lab Notebooks: General Information, Overview, Open Source Examples: Chemotion & eLabFTW
  • Data Loss & Preservation: Storage, Backup, Archiving, Publishing Data
  • Repositories, Example: Chemotion, Find the right Repository for you
  • Legal Aspects: Copyright, Data Protection
  • Data Management Plans: General Information, Create a Data Management Plan

The free-of-charge-workshop takes place on 6 and 8 July 2022, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The course language is English. 


Please register for this workshop with the registration form.

The course is limited to 25 participants.
However, there is a waiting list and a second run of the basic workshop in September 2022 is planned.
