Events in the Open Data in Practice series give you a fantastic opportunity to share, discuss and exchange ideas on research data management with your peers.

Can I present my own data management experience?

Yes, we want to hear from researchers and practitioners from different disciplines. In a short presentation (no longer than 20 minutes) tell us about:

  • What kinds of data are you sharing openly?
  • How you have shared research data?
  • What does open data mean in your subject area?
  • What are the benefits, and challenges, of sharing research data?

Speaker slots are available for this event. Email lib-research-support@york.ac.uk if you’d like to present.


Further information

Who should attend Open Data in Practice?

Open Data in Practice will bring together researchers, research support staff and experts in data management from all subject areas. Whether you are a PhD student, early career researcher or experienced academic, we want you to come along and share your data experiences.

Why Open Data in Practice?

Funders and Universities UK have recognised the benefits from opening up research data in the recently launched Concordat on Open Research Data. But what does that mean for you as a researcher?

Approaches to research data management will vary across different disciplines and research methods but we can still learn from one another. We want to provide you an opportunity to discuss data management, the challenges you face and the solutions you have identified.
