Have you ever wondered what Research Data Management (RDM) is all about? Why is it so important? What is special about managing data from microbial research? Then de.NBI and NFDI4Microbiota have created the perfect interactive training for you - a mix of presentations and interactive exercises!

More and more funders require research data to be published and archived. We will show you how Electronic Lab Notebooks (ELNs) can also help to facilitate this, in addition to boosting the efficiency of your day-to-day work during the research project. In just six hours, you will learn the fundamentals of ELNs and their advantages over paper notebooks and how to effectively set up and customize your ELN for your specific research needs. Data management experts will guide you through the basics of RDM, the do's and don'ts, and how to improve the management of data produced in microbial research projects. Following a brief introduction to the research data lifecycle and the FAIR data principles, we will 

  • explore the concept of ELNs through interactive hands-on sessions. 
  • focus on microbial data. 
  • describe best practices for data entry, management, and security within an ELN environment.
  • show collaborative features of ELNs and how to streamline communication within your team.
  • talk about compliance and regulatory considerations when using ELNs in research.

This workshop is for anyone working with microbial data, interested in active learning, and gaining skills in RDM and ELNs.

Learning goals:
- Know the research data life cycle.
- Know the FAIR principles and understand their importance.
- Know the uses of ELNs.
- Know the advantages of ELNs

- A computer with internet connection, a webcam, a microphone and a browser.
- No additional prerequisites required.
