An Introduction for Data Specialists - Research IT and the development of IT Solutions

Are you a data manager working at a faculty, strategic theme or project, data engineer, data scientist, data librarian or other? Then join the basic Research Data Management introduction programme.

The programme ensures that data specialists at Utrecht University have a shared level of understanding about the overall trends and expectations in the field of research data management and open science. Furthermore, you will meet your peers and become part of the knowledge and expert network of Research Data Management Support (RDM Support).

This way you will be up to date with available services and tools and you will be able to deliver good quality support to your research community.
