Report “Training seminar for research data stewardship and e-infrastructures”

collage5_enFrom 6th until 9th of July 2016, the project e-infrastructures Austria organised a  four-day “Training seminar for research data stewardship and e-infrastructures
This seminar was targeted at representatives from libraries, research services and IT services that build repositories and research support services at their institutes. The aim of the event was to provide knowledge sharing in research data management and workflows for research processes and digital archiving.

The training seminar was aimed primarily at people in the 26 partner institutions, who are in long-term charge of the development of institutional e-infrastructures and research data management services, and therefore subsequently would act as a contact person as well.

The lecturers were experts from the fields of science community, academic libraries, repository management, IT leads, research services and law. The full program can be consulted here.

The discussions of the participants and lecturers and the evaluation of their feedback have revealed a clear need for knowledge acquisition in the fields of research data management and related e-infrastructures. The majority of the representatives from the research-supporting services sector have already faced individual, specific
aspects of digital data management. For this reason, the future relevance of the subject is recognized and the organisers and participants would like to repeat this event in the future – preferably under one umbrella brand such as ‘e-infrastructures Austria’, as consolidating the multipliers all over Austria proved to be very beneficial both organizationally and financially.
