FAIR data competences in doctoral education programmes
Date: 
26 May 2021 to 27 May 2021
Location: 
Virtual

FAIRsFAIR, EUA and the University of Minho with the support of the EUA Council for Doctoral Education are organising a workshop on “FAIR data competences in doctoral education programmes”. The event will present the FAIR Competence Framework for Higher Education currently under development by the FAIRsFAIR project and discuss practical examples of research data management (RDM) training in doctoral education programmes across Europe. The workshop will take place on Wednesday, 26 May 2021 and Thursday, 27 May 2021 from 10:00 to 13:00 CET. 

The event responds to the need to expand data education, focused on FAIR data, in particular for doctoral candidates and early-career researchers and will introduce participants to the main recommendations from the FAIR Competence Framework for Higher Education proposed by FAIRsFAIR. The workshop will be an opportunity to discuss the specific needs and challenges of RDM competences and skills at the doctoral level. Participants will have the opportunity to share experiences about the practical adoption in doctoral education programmes, such as doctoral education courses and doctoral schools. 

The workshop will be of interest to academic leaders, trainers involved in RDM training at the doctoral level and other professionals responsible for doctoral education programmes.
