CESSDA Training Project Meeting 2019

Tuesday, 22 January, 8:40  – Wednesday, 23 January, 15:00
Prague, Czech Republic



We invite all the members of the CESSDA Training Working Group to participate in workshop and the Kick-off meeting of the CESSDA 2019 Work Plan Tasks on training. The CESSDA Training Working Group, comprising a number of members across CESSDA Service Providers, has for the last two years collaboratively developed valuable training resources on research data management (RDM) and data discovery (DD), and has been also delivering training to researchers and trainers on these topics, in order to instil good data practices and promote cross-European data reuse. This meeting will be devoted to follow up projects of strengthening and widening the scope and expertise of training in 2019. It will include also practical training on webinar delivery, video tutorial creation and scripting, which will be targeted to the project team members in relation with planned tasks. For more information on the CESSDA Training Working Group see the CESSDA Training Web page.

This meeting will be followed by the CESSDA Widening Project Meeting 2019, which will be hold at the same place on 23 – 24 January (click here to visit the CESSDA Widening Project Meeting Web page).
