08 February 2021 to 11 February 2021

The SSHOC project and DARIAH-ERIC announce an interactive bootcamp for trainers, data supporters, librarians and data stewards in the humanities and social sciences who provide training in the field of Research Data Management. 

The bootcamp will take place over 2 half-days, with a break in between to allow for independent study.

  • Monday 8 February 2021 10:00-12:00 CET
  • Thursday 11 February 2021 10:00-12:00 CET

Please note: Participation is required on both days. 


Participants will receive expert training from leading practitioners and trainers in the field of Research Data Management, and will have the opportunity to specialise in a key area of interest and also to receive peer feedback on an assignment to be completed between sessions. The second session will conclude with a plenary session focusing on Research Data Management didactics. 

Course Structure

Day 1 will introduce three topics from which participants can then choose a specialisation:

  • Planning to meet the costs of managing research data to be FAIR (by FAIRsFAIR member Angus Whyte DCC UK)
  • GDPR and Ethical issues in working with social media data, 
  • Dealing with third-party data coming from Cultural Heritage institutions (galleries, museums, libraries, archives)

Participants will receive  a ‘homework assignment’ in their chosen subject area, to be completed ready for discussion during Day 2.

Day 2 participants will discuss their completed assignments and attend a plenary session on didactics.

FAIRsFAIR activity

Angus Whyte, member of FAIRsFAIR, from DCC, presented "Planning to meet the costs of managing research data to be FAIR".  This session offered training resources to help researchers to do the following:

  • Understand why they should budget for the costs of making data FAIR, and keeping it FAIR, and include these costs in grant applications;
  • Appreciate the benefits that services may provide to justify their costs;
  • Know about the different kinds of data management costs, including costs that funding bodies may allow to be charged to projects;
  • Apply a costing guide to help budget for the costs that may arise in preparing data to be FAIR;
  • Share experiences and expectations about costing the preparation of  FAIR data.
