Data Management Plan Fundamentals

Wednesday, May 30, 2018 - 14:30 to 17:00

The goal of the workshop is to present the EUDAT services (part of the EOSC-hub Service Catalogue), the interoperability possibilities between infrastructures, the results of the collaboration activity achieved so far and how users can apply for obtaining combined resources. The session will be completed by a hands-on on how to write a Data Management Plan (DMP) which is a useful instrument for researchers to reflect on and communicate about the way they will deal (generate, analyse and share) with their data during their research project and afterwards.

The workshop is part of the annual conference of the PRACE Research Infrastructure


  • Introduction to EUDAT Services and interoperability solutions, Giuseppe Fiameni, CINECA (20 minutes)

  • Joint call for proposals - How users can apply for combined resources, Debora Testi, CINECA (20 minutes)

  • Data Management Plan fundamentals, René van Horik, DANS / EOSC-HUB (90 minutes)

    • DMP Hands-on a concrete use case


Data Analysis made easy with the ENES Climate Analytics Service (ECAS)

Wednesday, April 10, 2019 - 08:30 to 10:15

The ENES Climate Analytics Service (ECAS) team will organize a training session at the European Geoscience Union (EGU) general assembly (7–12 April 2019). The session is divided into a teaching as well as a hands on training part and includes:

  • presentation(s) on the theoretical and technical background of ECAS. This covers the data cube concept and its operations (eg.: subset extraction, reduction, aggregation). Furthermore, we provide an introduction to the Ophidia framework, which is the components of ECAS for processing multidimensional data.
  • tutorials and training materials. Participants will have the opportunity to dive into the ECAS software stack and learn how to manipulate multidimensional data through real world use cases from the climate domain. 

Short overview of ECAS

"ECAS allows you to work with Jupyter notebooks and server-side computing and data processing frameworks

ECAS provides access to data via ESGF and enables easy sharing of results with your immediate colleagues and the wider community."

2018 UNIDATA User Workshop

Monday, June 25, 2018 - 11:00 to 11:45

The workshop will bring together community members, and distinguished speakers, and Unidata staff, to raise awareness of the current trends in the academic geoscience community with an emphasis on Data Proximate Analysis, Machine Learning and Data Analytics, Using GOES-16 Data, and Working with Ensemble NWP Output. Scientists and educators from the academic geoscience community will present ideas and techniques for making effective use of geoscience data and share activities, course materials, and ideas for improving education and research.

There will be hands-on workshops, a poster session, and time for informal discussions with presenters and Unidata developers.

Towards cultural change in data management - data stewardship in practice

Thursday, May 24, 2018 - 09:30 to 18:00

About the workshop​

During this event, we will explore these issues. First, Danny Kingsley from the University of Cambridge will speak about research integrity and research reproducibility as the drivers for better data stewardship practices. This will be followed by case studies from TU Delft and from other organisations about the practical implementation of data stewardship. Subsequently, participants will be invited to take part in smaller focus groups and workshops on the topic. Finally, Kim Huijpen from the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU) will speak about rewarding researchers for doing quality research.

Who should come?

  • Research support staff caring about embedding good data management practices
  • Researchers interested in hearing about the benefits of good data management
  • Senior administrative staff
  • Funders and policy makers
  • Anyone willing to contribute to the discussion about cultural change in data management

How to make training FAIR

Monday, June 4, 2018 - 09:00 to Thursday, June 7, 2018 - 14:00

Invited contribution to the satellite workshop to the ELIXIR annual meeting on “How to make training FAIR”. The fourth ELIXIR All Hands meeting will take place 4 -7 June 2018, bringing together members of the ELIXIR community from across the ELIXIR Nodes, and collaborators from partner organisations, in order to review ELIXIR achievements and activities so far and discuss plans for the future. The All Hands also acts as the ELIXIR-EXCELERATE Annual General Meeting.
