On our quest to cultivate and support research data management, we RDM trainers (also educators, consultants, data stewards, managers, officers, or similar) profit from exchange: Sharing our materials, learning from each other‘s experiences, and providing advice helps us to help researchers and other stakeholders. Thus, let’s congregate in person to facilitate and foster our community. The goal of our first RDM Trainer Community Meeting is to boost the network or fellowship of like-minded actors willing to connect and collaborate.

Three focal topics are set to guide contributions and discussions: (1) We aim to learn how other RDM trainers see themselves and how they interpret and tackle their tasks; (2) we hope to collect tried-and-tested methods and trainings; and (3) we intend to explore potential applications of recent gamification approaches. The agenda includes opportunities for exchange and exploration along with a poster session as well as keynotes chosen to instigate further reflection and networking. Additionally, you can join us in the informal satellite activities to make the most of your trip to Berlin.

This RDM Trainer Community Meeting is organized by de.NBI/ELIXIR-DE in the framework of ELIXIR-CONVERGE and the Sub-Working Group Training/Further Education of the DINI/nestor WG Research Data. It takes place in Berlin Adlershof at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin in person on the 21. & 22. June 2023. Attendance is free of charge. We invite everyone working in RDM training and education and look forward to the formation of a strong, connected fellowship.

Call for Poster

We highly encourage you to prepare a poster for the RDM Trainer Community Meeting! The poster session is planned to foster exchange regarding perspectives on “the job” – thus, we would like to invite introductions of initiatives or institutes, how and with which methods or material they teach RDM, lessons learned, and/or what they aspire or plan to undertake.

We have 30 slots for posters (A0, portrait) and corresponding lightning talks (1 minute overview of your poster), which we will select from your abstracts.

To propose your poster for the session, please send your poster title and a short abstract (upto 200 words) of your presented initiative/institution and one or two focal aspects via the registration form. We will select contributions and get back to you.

Poster submission deadline: April 30th 2023
