RDMF7: Incentivising Data Management & Sharing
02-03 November 2011 |
The seventh RDMF workshop took place at the University of Warwick on 2nd and 3rd November 2011.
The theme for the workshop was Incentivising Data Management & Sharing. Presentations and discussions addressed a vibrant range of questions including
- What are the enablers and barriers for the sharing and reuse of research data, and what really is the key to unlocking an apparent impasse?
- What kinds and level of impact from research output are both desirable and achievable through the application of effective data management?
- What should be the funders’ role in motivating data sharing?
- Are institutional measures to encourage and facilitate effective data management and sharing a matter of cash, careers or cultural change?
- What should be involved in the creation of support infrastructures that will engage researchers?
- Can applying a benefits analysis toolkit have value as a motivational lever?
- What should be funded by whom and who claims the return on investment? What are the implications for funders, institutions and researchers?
The funders' role as motivators. A myth, or achievable reality? - Ben Ryan, EPSRC
Institutional measures to encourage and facilitate effective data management and sharing. A matter of cash, careers or cultural change? - Miggie Pickton, University of Northampton
Benefits analysis: challenges and opportunities - Neil Beagrie, Neil Begrie Ltd
The institutional data management blueprint - Jeremy Frey, University of Southampton
