The Interest Group on Education and Training for the Handling of Research Data (IG-ETHRD) had a bumper turnout at its most recent meeting (P6, Sept 2015), with 99 seats filled and some more people listening from outside. Clearly the training and skills agenda is an important one which connects directly to building capacity and creating jobs across the research data space.
