Research projects create a lot of data. Although these data should remain available, in practice data often get lost. To address this problem the GO-FAIR Foundation advocates the FAIR principles. Research data should be Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable in an automated way. FAIR Data Stewards work with researchers to help them make their research data FAIR. In this course you will get an introduction to the knowledge and skills required to work as a data steward. This course is a pilot, and is co-developed as part of a partnership between the Hogeschool Leiden and the GO-FAIR Foundation.
The lessons are interactive with both theory and assignments. In between lessons you will get homework assignments that will take you about four hours a week.
