A competition has been launched by the University of Cambridge, SPARC Europe and JISC to elicit new and imaginative ideas for engaging researchers in the practices of good research data management (RDM).
This builds on the Engaging Good Data Management Conference that took place at the University of Cambridge in November last year. One submision will be chosen as the winner and up to £1750 will be awarded to bring it to life.
The deadline for applications is 12pm, Feb. 28, 2018 GMT.
University of Cambridge’s Dr. Marta Teperek will be presenting details of the award during the Research Data Alliance’s (RDA) Data Innovation Forum to be held in Brussels, Belgium on January 30, 2018.
As part of the goal is to encourage a global movement to engage more researchers in good data management, the winning idea should be applicable and transferable to a broad range of countries, institutions, settings and disciplines.
It should also have the potential for wide impact – to engage as many people as possible in better, and preferably, open data management practices. (Think: ideas that have the potential to connect with large groups.) And the idea shouldn’t require a large budget to execute, so that it is easily reusable by others.
