Description

Research Data: Keep it, throw it, put it in the vault..?

In this Data Conversation we want to talk about the long term value of data. How can we make sure that data is accessible and usable now and into the future? Should we be keeping all of our data and if not, how can we assess what has long term value?

Come and share your data stories. We’d like to hear from:

  • People who’ve made decisions about what’s really worth preserving for the long term.
  • People who’ve created data that has been reused.
  • People who’ve reused data.
  • People who’ve lost data.
  • People who’ve faced obstacles reusing data.
  • People who’ve moved institutions and struggled to access their data.
