Webinar: Research Data Management – from compliance to opportunity
Research Infrastructure Network
The Research infrastructure network at the University of Bergen will organize its next seminar Wednesday 05. May 2021, from 09:00-10:30 am. The seminar's theme will be "Research Data Management – from compliance to opportunity" presented from different points of view, both at university, national and international level.
Research Infrasctructures and EOSC, a European Strategy
Emma Lazzeri - Research Infrasctructures and EOSC, a European Strategy
The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) has entered its operative phase. How is EOSC relating with the ESFRI Research Infrastructures and the European Commission strategy for Open Science? We will see details and achievements in this presentation.
Data management plans – a bureaucratic evil or a useful tool?
Nenitha C. Dagslott - Advisor | Research Infrastructure, The Research Council of Norway
I will briefly outline The Research Council of Norway’s Policy on Open Science in the context of today's (inter)national research landscape. Specifically, I will focus on tools for research data management, such as DMP's and related requirements for these in our funding schemes.
Data management: An introduction to legal requirements and on how to achieve societal and scientific impact
Benjamin Pfeil - Senior Engineer, Leader of the Bjerknes Climate Data Centre
Open access to research data, as part of the open science framework, is becoming the norm while taking into account the need to balance openness and protection information. Projects funded by the EC automatically opt-in to open data policies that require a data management plan (DMP) and manage responsibly all digital research data generated in the action in line with the FAIR principles - national funding agencies follow the approach by the EC. Open access to results and data is essential to generate new research, new innovation and beneficiaries must provide immediate open access (i.e. at publication) through a trusted repository for peer-reviewed publications. This presentation will highlight legal requirements and how open access to research data is needed for science and society.
Data Management: A short update from the UiB IT department
Alexander Oltu - Senior Engineer, Head of Scientific Computing
The University of Bergen (UiB) develops a strategy for Open Data and Data Management. This has implications for how the data is managed in the research cycle. What are the options?
Data management for normal people:)!
Even Birkeland - Chief Engineer at the Proteomics Unit at the University of Bergen (PROBE)
Running a core facility with state-of-the-art machinery that generate terabytes of data every month require routines for data management. Mix that with the desperation of PhD students, professors and master students closing in on a deadline and, it is a potential data crisis. At the Proteomics Unit at the University of Bergen (PROBE) we have for the last year further been developing a data management plan (DMP) for ourselves and users of the facility. Hopefully, this talk could give an insight in the challenges and benefits of implementing a DMP at a core facility.
Emma Lazzeri works at GARR, and she is affiliated researcher at The Institute Information Science and Technologies of the Italian National Research Council in Pisa Italy. She is Open Science expert working on defining strategies, tools and in disseminating Open Science. Her research interests are in Open Science, including policies, best practices, strategies. Emma is involved as expert in working groups at European and national level, she is the coordinator of the Competence Centre for EOSC, Open Science and FAIR data management, and is a speaker in many international and national conferences in the field of Open Science and Scholarly communication. She holds a PhD in Innovative technology - Telecommunications from Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Pisa Italy and a MSc and BSc in Telecommunication engineering from Università di Pisa, Italy.
