The Digital Competence Center (DCC) Implementation Network and partners would like to invite you to the 2021 DCC Spring Training Days!

In three interactive afternoons in May and June of 2021, we will cover several topics related to Research Data Management (RDM) and Open Science. The DCC Spring Training Days are intended as a pilot for a national collaboration on training and workshops in Research Data Management and Open Science, aimed at both researchers and starting research data stewards. 

For this pilot, we can accept 30 participants. From the registrations, we will select a diverse group of researchers and data stewards from different backgrounds. 

The Training Days are designed for people new to RDM and Open Science, and will be held via Zoom. Participation is free of charge. You can register here!
