Belmont Forum e-Infrastructures and Data Management Activities at EGU

EGU Town Hall: International Collaboration on e-Infrastructures and Data Management for Global Change Research
Thursday, 27 April, 19.00 Room .96

This Town Hall will highlight the progress and accomplishments of the Belmont Forum e-Infrastructures and Data Management (e-I&DM) Project toward its goal of accelerating open sharing and improved management of scientific, global change research data and discoveries across scientific disciplines, agencies, organizations, and geopolitical boundaries. Please join the e-I&DM team for a robust discussion of ongoing data management challenges for collaborative interdisciplinary, international research and possible solutions.

Data Skills Training Curriculum Development Workshop
Friday 28 April, 08.30-16.30
Vienna Marriott Prater-Messe

This discussion-style workshop will explore the elements to include in a data skills curriculum to help non-data scientists become more "data smart" in order to accelerate open data sharing, increase reproducibility and improve data management/curation. There are very limited spaces still available. If you have experience in capacity building or training development and are interested in participating, please contact the BF e-I&DM secretariat for more information.

The workshop will bring together global environmental change and earth science research specialists to test the results of a data skills gap survey undertaken in late 2016 by the Belmont Forum e-Infrastructures & Data Management Project, with the aim to establish the foundations for digital skills training requirements across the breadth of Belmont Forum-relevant disciplines. 'Digital skills' include, but are not limited to, research data management skills, data deposition and sharing, and software/programming/modeling capabilities.  The conclusions reached at the workshop will form a critical part of recommendations of key curricula to the Belmont Forum Principals at their annual meeting in November.
