Connecting Research Data. Good Practices for Data Integration and Reuse
The willingness of archiving and sharing research data is growing due to external incentives of funding agencies and publishers that determine the way data should be shared. Researchers are aware of the importance of making their data available when possible, but they struggle with the proper way of structuring data. This big event on open data aims to give best practices for researchers and research supporters on dissemination of scientific results through interoperable quality standards. To realise positive changes in research practice, the event will show examples of interoperability and new research outcomes that occurred by re-using and mixing data sets.
The event expects 150 participants (researchers, head of research departments and research supporters) from the universities and research institutes in the Netherlands – this number is realistic because earlier events on research data for a group of 100 participants in the last year were very easily filled.
