de.NBI/GFBio Summer School on Data Management

The Ger­man Fed­er­a­tion for Bio­lo­gical Data (GFBio) and the Ger­man Net­work for Bioin­form­at­ics In­fra­struc­ture (de.NBI) are for the first time pro­mot­ing a joint sum­mer school to sup­port re­search­ers in man­aging their sci­entific data. 18 young sci­ent­ists met at the Braun­sch­weig Centre for Sys­tems Bio­logy.

"Rid­ing the Data Life Cycle" is the title of the sum­mer school and refers to the OECD re­com­mend­a­tion that data from pub­licly fun­ded re­search must be pub­licly avail­able.

The aim is to provide a prac­tical tool­box for the col­lec­tion, main­ten­ance, doc­u­ment­a­tion, archiv­ing and pub­lic­a­tion of re­search data ac­cord­ing to the FAIR data prin­ciples (Find­able, Ac­cess­ible, In­ter­op­er­able and Re-us­able). Prac­tical train­ing is also in­teg­rated to eval­u­ate data for re­use.
