This year, Compute Canada is offering post-RDM Week workshops focusing on data & software carpentry, as well as on West Grid scheduling.

Research Data Management (RDM) practices are evolving, and the 2016 Tri-Agency Statement of Principles on Digital Data Management  demonstrates both the importance of RDM and the challenges faced by researchers and institutions regarding the management of research data. Data Management Plans, metadata standards, data archiving, and data sharing and re-purposing are all becoming norms within the research landscape.

From the creation and collection of data to their long-term preservation, over twenty RDM-related talks and workshops have been organized to help you better understand and apply research data management “best practices”!
