Infoshare: EUDAT – Empowering NRENs and their Institutions with Data Management Capabilities – 23 January 2023


23 January 2023, 13:00-14:30 CET

In this GÉANT Infoshare, learn about how forward-looking NRENs have partnered with EUDAT to provide research data management services and enable their universities and institutions to better manage their data.

Last year’s EUDAT Conference highlighted some of the research data challenges that researchers face such as capturing, organising, handling, and accessing large or complex data, and being increasingly required to have the capability to make data Open and FAIR. At the same time, NRENs provide the main eInfrastructure for research and university services to work such as providing network connection and trust and Identity services but many are also increasingly starting to offer data services.

With Open Science and FAIR research data management gaining more momentum across Europe, see how NRENs can further add value to their offering towards their members that are looking to better manage their research data.
