Research Data Management Summer School. Apply now!

From 3-7 July 2017, the first EUDAT & RDM Summer School will take place in the stunning setting of Heraklion, Crete.  Go to the Application section to submit your application. Deadline for submissions is 17 April, 2017.


From 3-7 July 2017, EUDAT (Research Data Services, Expertise & Technology Solutions) is organizing a Summer School, set in the stunning landscapes of Heraklion, Crete, and kindly hosted by FORTH.


To introduce early-career researchers to the principles and tools needed for careers in data intensive science and data management.

The course is applicable to:

Those working with big data, as well as researchers from less data-intensive communities. In collaboration with other pan European e-Infrastructures, this intense training course will provide attendees with a better understanding of the European e-Infrastructure landscape, the different tools and services offered by them, and how they can be used to improve the quality of your research outputs.

What will you learn?

The focus of this Summer School is on data management and using EUDAT data services.

The course will:

  • demonstrate how these services, as well as services provided by other e-infrastructures, can be used throughout the Data Lifecycle;
  • illustrate established research processes from different communities and how they are enabled with these services.

Attendees will:

  • understand how the international e-infrastructures, which originate in different fields of research, are building blocks to allow a more integrated solution to meet their needs;
  • actively explore data services. Some individual guidance will be also provided;
  • be able to answer the following questions by the end of the course:

“I am a researcher and would like to know which services could help me during different phases of my research, and under which conditions I can use the services.”

“As a scientist on a data intensive project, I need to understand how to make use of e-infrastructures for the analysis, curation and provenance of my results, and how to publish the data to make it accessible for other researchers.”

“There are so many data services around; how can I set up and carry out my data management?


The target audience is primarily early-career researchers interested in furthering their careers in the fields of data management, data science or digital preservation. These researchers may come from any research community. 

Data managers interested in the integration of EUDAT solutions are also invited to apply.

APPLY NOW ! Deadline for submissions: Monday April 17th 2017, midnight CET.
