CODATA-RDA Research Data Summer School set for January 2020
The CODATA-RDA Research Data Summer School is scheduled to take place from 13 to 24 January 2020 at the University of Pretoria.
The school provides early career researchers (M-level to postdoc) with the foundational data science skills, which include technical skills and responsible research practices, to enable them to work with their data in an effective and efficient manner required by 21st century research.
The material covered by the programme is fundamental to all areas of research, and thus open to researchers and professionals from all disciplines that deal with significant amounts of research data. The goal is to provide a practical introduction to these topics with some theory and extensive hands-on training.
