The critical role of university RDM infrastructure in transforming data to knowledge

Göttingen, Allemagne

Abstracts are invited for the Göttingen-CODATA RDM Symposium 2018 on ‘The critical role of university RDM infrastructure in transforming data to knowledge’. The symposium will take place in Göttingen from 18-20 March 2018 : it is a collaboration between the University of Göttingen and CODATA and is intended as a precursor event to the RDA plenary meeting in Berlin on 21-23 March 2018.


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 centre, faculties and other stakeholders.

Nowhere in the world has such a complete support scenario been perfected. It is timely for actors in the various dimensions of such initiatives internationally to share their practical experiences, research and insights.
