Researchers are generating huge volumes of data in a diverse range of formats – from digital code to sculptures to images. Research Data has unknown potential benefits for future use and Research Data Management (RDM) allows us to maximise the benefit of this valuable asset.

Increasingly funders expect researchers to include a Data Management Plan (DMP) as part of the bidding process, to demonstrate their commitment to RDM. Coventry University also expect researchers to have a DMP and Principle Investigators are responsible for ensuring data is managed responsibly. The session will look at tools available to assist in writing a Data Management Plan.

The session will cover the basics of RDM, including managing data sensitively and securely. Decision-making around creating, storing, sharing and preserving data, will be discussed, plus how to seek additional support.

What are the benefits?

An understanding of good Research Data Management practice is vital for anyone carrying out research. This session will ensure that staff have knowledge of the essential principles and practices, which can also be passed on to students.

Topics covered include:

• What is RDM and why is it important
• Data Management Planning
• Support & guidance at CU
• Data repositories for existing reusable datasets

Who should attend?

Staff who are carrying out research.
Staff who support students who are carrying out research.
Essential for Principle Investigators.
