On Monday October 15th, the University of Teramo - Graduation Hall | Faculties of Political Science – Communication Science, organizes the *2nd Meeting and roundtable on "Open Science: Science as Heritage. How to participate opening Science and its Data". The roundtable is mainly for PhD students, Researchers and Librarians.
This meeting took place during TDWG 2018 in Dunedin, New Zealand. We updated TDWG members about where we are in the RDA process. The group came to consensus that we should explore developing a Darwin Core extension for attribution. Representatives from iDigBio were present and agreed to adopt our recommendations.
The event this year is organised by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research, with funding from the European Union. Speakers representing high-level stakeholders from across the globe and highly profiled institutions will intervene in the debate.
The goal of this workshop is to train researchers in Research Data Science (RDS). RDS refers to the principles and practice of Open Science and research data management and curation, the use of a range of data platforms and infrastructures, large scale analysis, statistics, visualization and modelling techniques, software development and data annotation. These are important tools for extracting useful information from data and these tools are useful in every research area. A 10-day workshop, organized by CODATA, ICTP and EAIFR, will be conducted at the University of Rwanda, Kigali to introduce participants to the skills of RDS.
