Essentials 4 Data Support went to Denmark!18 April 2016
On 12 and 13 April, two RDNL coaches delivered an abridged version of the regular data support training in northern Jutland. RDNL had been invited by the Danish Forum for Data Management, a collaboration of Danish universities, national archives and national libraries.
As in the Netherlands, data management is increasingly important in Denmark. Furthermore, Danish institutions are required to implement the Danish Code of Conduct for Research Integrity of 2014. Thirty professionals from libraries, IT departments and research support offices had assembled for a two-day train-the-trainer course.
“My colleague Ellen Verbakel and I are very happy with the positive feedback we received from the course participants,” says RDNL coach Marjan Grootveld. “They were particularly pleased with the combination of presentations and practical assignments, for instance in data management planning. The participants also indicated that the course provided them with opportunities to strengthen their national network.”
