FAIR data stewardship course 26.10.-30.11.2020

Welcome to the third Nordic course on “FAIR data stewardship”.

The course will run over five weeks (equivalent to 5 days) and will provide the much needed foundational skills for competent data stewards and data managers in the Nordic countries with knowledge of the FAIR principles and their application. The course will be held by trainers from Phortos Consultants and provides a broad, but fairly technical introduction to data stewardship. Exercises and assignments will be included to allow participants hands-on experience and assignments to help identify knowledge gaps. The event is organised by NeIC in collaboration with CSC in Finland, SND and SNIC in Sweden.

More information and registration

Please remember to choose Finland as a country, the fee will then be 5300 NOK (gives a discount with 3200 NOK, subsidied by the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture) for the Finnish participants.

Tässä webinaarissa käymme läpi Qvaimen toiminnallisuuksia ja viimeisimpiä muutoksia.
