Since a great deal is invested in obtaining valuable research data, good data management is important. But what does that involve? And how do you ensure that your data remain accessible and usable in the future, for yourself and others? We'd like to help you get started with this introductory workshop.


The workshop centers around the data management plan (DMP): a digital document in which you describe what data your are going to collect during your research project, how you will store and manage the data during the project, and what will happen to the data after the project has finished.

Planning for data management reduces the chances of having to face nasty surprises later in your research. It will save you time, work and money. Moreover, a growing number of research funders make a (succinct) DMP mandatory.


After attending the workshop, you will

  • understand what research data are and what management of research data involves,
  • be able to complete a DMP, and
  • know who to ask for help with data management. 


Researchers from all disciplines are welcome to attend, a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 10 per workshop.  The workshop will be held six times, on 15 January (Dutch), 21 January (Dutch), 27 January (English), 23 Februari (Dutch), 4 March (Dutch) and 17 March (English).

Does none of these dates suit you, while you would like to attend the workshop? Let us know via, and we'll keep you informed about new dates.
