Interested in how universities can support research data management?
The University of Oxford has been involved in a number of projects to develop tools, services, and training to support the management of research data. The most recent of these projects, the Oxford Data Management Planning Online Project, and the Data Management Roll-out at Oxford (Damaro) Project, have been addressing the full research data lifecycle – putting in place the infrastructure to support research data from planning through to re-use.
On Friday 28th June, we will be staging a workshop at Rewley House, Oxford, to demonstrate the tools we’ve been developing, discuss the approach we’re adopting, and to dig deeper into the requirements of the researchers we are aiming to support.

Session 2 : Managing data across the life-cycle
How in practice can data best be managed to ensure funder's requirements are are met? What tools, services, and advice are required at different stages? What are the issues faced? What different approaches are there?
