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.

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


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

FitSM Foundation Training (jointly organized with EOSCpilot project)

Tuesday, May 22, 2018 - 12:00 to Wednesday, May 23, 2018 - 18:00

T Service Management is a discipline that helps provide services with a focus on customer needs and in a professional manner. It is widely used in the commercial and public sectors to manage IT services of all types, but current solutions are very heavyweight with high barriers to entry.

FitSM is a lightweight approach to professionally managing services. It brings order and traceability to a complex area and provides simple, practical support in getting started with ITSM. FitSM training and certification provides crucial help in providing services and improving their management. It provides a common conceptual and process model, sets out straightforward and realistic requirements and links them to supporting materials.

Webinar: How to manage your data to make them Open and FAIR

Tuesday, May 15, 2018 - 13:00 to 14:00

Worldwide there is an astonishing number of tools and services to “do something” with your research data, for instance, to make them FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable). How do you choose what can be useful for you?
Step 1: find out and explore what your organisation provides.
Step 2: watch this webinar!

FitSM webinar for the CORBEL community

Tuesday, February 6, 2018 - 15:00 to Friday, April 27, 2018 - 13:39

To meet customer needs and provide valuable services, it is important to maintain a high quality of service, which requires a well-structured approach to how the service is managed. Existing approaches to formal IT Service Management (ITSM), such as ITIL and the ISO/IEC 20000 standard are useful but not always well suited to the challenges of providing distributed services, especially federated environments, and can often be seen as overly complex.

FitSM Foundation training during the EOSC-hub AHM

Thursday, April 19, 2018 - 17:00 to Friday, April 20, 2018 - 13:30

FitSM is a standards family for lightweight IT Service Management (ITSM). The kick-off meeting offers the opportunity to be trained and certified in the FitSM, which is supported by the project. The Foundation level training provides an introduction to the basic IT service management concepts and terms, outlines the purpose and structure of FitSM standards and their relationship to other standards and understand the process framework underlying FitSM, and details the formal requirements defined within it. The training will take place on Mon afternoon (8 Jan) and Tue mid-day (9 Jan), allowing attendance of the opening plenary. Only participants who register in advance can be admitted to the training. A limited number of participants is admitted, however, it is available to any interested project members and is highly recommended for task leaders and WP managers. Other training events will be organized during the project for anyone unable to attend due to clashes.
