Better Science through Better Data 2017 (#scidata17)

Event programme and other details of our research data conference

Like Comment

For the 2017 conference, Springer Nature are again partnering with Wellcome Trust to stage the event, which will cover the benefits, unintended consequences and practicalities of managing and publishing research data.

This will include a focus on the needs of early career researchers, such as data skills, career progression, and good practice for sharing data alongside peer-reviewed publications. We also anticipate showing examples of innovative approaches to data sharing and reuse, and demos of tools and resources available to researchers to help them, and the research community, make the best use of their research data.

The event will involve a number of short “lightning” talks and demos from researchers and students presenting case studies of research data sharing, data reuse and associated tools in action. 

This conference will be live streamed through the Scientific Data Facebook page:
