GFBio has launched some weeks ago a Data Management Plan Tool (DMPT). The DMPT was developed for individual scientists research groups, and for large research projects. Available under: More information can be found under:

They also provide training materials to learn about data management planning.

The next info event of the Göttingen eResearch Alliance for (new) researchers at UMG on research data management will take place from 11:00 - 12:00 a.m. in lecture hall 01/02 on Monday June 25, 2018.
During your daily research routine, digital data occour in different amounts and forms. The event will give your an overview about existing data management services at UMG.

The slides are available here.

As part of the Göttingen eResearch Toolbox Series (GeTS), the eResearch Alliance organizes a workshop on Workflow Management and Documentation.

The event will take place on Monday, 14.05.2018 from 11-16 at the „Großer Seminarraum“ on the first floor in the central library building (Zentralbiblitohek), Platz der Göttinger Sieben 1 (directions). The workshop will cover short presentations and discussions about key aspects and different flavors of workflow management and documentation in academic research. We would like to bring together different pioneers and interested parties from all research areas, especially at the Göttingen Campus (but also at other locations), for an exchange of experiences on different workflow management approaches.

If you want to participate, please indicate your attendance via the following link:

The next Göttingen Summer School on Data Science will be held from August 02 to August 16 2018.

This two-week program aims at advanced MA- and beginning PhD students from any discipline who are interested in learning about the many facets of data science. In a series of lectures, the participants will be introduced to the field of data science from different vantage points. Practical sessions will allow students to apply different theories and methods in practice, both individually and in teams.

Topics will cover:

  • Data management, Data sharing and Data publication
  • Open Science
  • Legal and ethical aspects (e.g. Licensing, Copyright)
  • Infrastructures and Platforms (HPC, CloudComputing, CloudStorage)
  • Mathematical and Statistical Methods
  • Data processing I (eg. Text, Image and Database Analysis)
  • Data processing II (eg. Visualization & storytelling)
  • Application Examples

Registration is open now - Deadline for Application: Jan 26 2018!

On December 06 the DARIAH-DE Repository has been launched to support research data management in the Arts and Humanities. The data can be stored permanently, will stay reusable and identifiable. Researchers can manage their stored data on their own responsibility. The repository supports all formats of data and data will be published Open Access. For more Information have a look at (German) or (Englisch).
The operation of the DARIAH-DE Repository will be ensured by the Humanities Data Center (HDC).


The next info event for researchers at UMG on research data management will take place from 11:00 - 12:00 a.m. in lecture hall 91/92 on Friday November 24, 2017. During your daily research routine, digital data occour in different amounts and forms. The event will give your an overview about existing data management services at UMG.

Organisiert von der Landesinitiative NFDI der Digitalen Hochschule NRW findet am 20.11.2017 ein Workshop an der RWTH Aachen zum Thema elektronische Laborbücher (ELN) statt.

Ziel des Workshops ist es, interessierten Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftlern einen Überblick über verfügbare und erprobte Technologien zu geben und diese Lösungen an den individuellen Ansprüchen zu messen.

All over the world universities and libraries have started the task of developing research data services. Ideally such initiatives aim to result in a complete service portfolio covering the entire research lifecycle: Support in writing proposals and data management plans, repository infrastructures for the storage of data, support in publishing data, assignment of persistent identifiers, lecturing in data management, etc. This broad scope means that such services are often seen as requiring a joint effort from from university, library, IT center, faculties and other stakeholders.

Currently nowhere in the world such a complete support scenario has been established. It is timely for actors in the various dimensions of such initiatives internationally to share their experiences, research and insights.
In this symposium we will explore the topic and hear research papers, practice papers and lightening talks from organisations that have started to offer such services in whole or in part on their campus. The symposium will provide a forum for universities and libraries to share their experience and to learn from each other.

The symposium will take place as a precursor event to the RDA plenary meeting in Berlin, 21.-23. March 2018 and will be co-organised by CODATA, the Committee on Data of the International Council for Science. Attendance will be both by invitation and open registration. For more information please visit:
