Seminar ‘Everything you always wanted to know about Research Data Management, but were afraid to ask’

Collecting, documenting, storing, and sharing research data, can be quite a challenge. The University Library organizes an expert meeting with three speakers who will give an informal introduction into different aspects of research data, ranging from registration, storage, use and reuse, to the legal and ethical aspects, funder requirements and good practices.
