Knowledge_ExchangeKnowledge Exchange (KE) has recently released recommendations for a repository for training materials on research data management (RDM). Following a workshop of experts in February 2016 in London and the publication of a report called “Training for research data management: comparative European approaches”, the currently published report focusses on requirements for a repository on RDM training materials.

Currently, we are still in the process of enhancing technical functionalities and layout of the application. In the next weeks I will report on detail on the application. Read the rest of this entry »
