Representatives of several ministries, funding bodies, research institutions from eight European countries and representatives of two international publishers attended at the Campus of the University of Vienna a workshop focused on Research Data Management towards Open Science.
The LEARN partners were represented by the University of Vienna, University College London (UCL), University of Barcelona and LIBER. They shared their experiences in three parallel Round Tables during the afternoon sessions. The topics of the Round Tables were driven by the four excellent keynotes in the morning session which addressed policy development and alignment, the European Open Science Cloud, the growing engagement of publishers in the field of research data management, the recommendations of the RDA on enabling precise identification and citability of dynamic data and a use case on a large Austrian project in the field of Digital Humanities. The programme and the presentations are available. The plenary sessions were video recorded and we plan to put the videos up on the LEARN website soon.
In his closing remarks, LEARN project coordinator Paul Ayris gave an outlook on further project developments. Workshop organiser Paolo Budroni invited the participants to the 3rd LEARN Workshop on Research Data Management – “Make research data management policies work” – organized by LIBER and to be held in Helsinki on 28th June 2016.
