Following on from our Research Data Management Forum: Inaugural Workshop on 19-20 March 2008, the DCC - in partnership with the Research Information Network - held the second workshop on the roles and responsibilities for effective data management at Chancellors Conference Centre, Manchester.

The themes explored at this workshop included:

  1. Roles and responsibilities associated with data curation and good stewardship
  2. The core skills required for these roles
  3. Ways in which the various stakeholders might acquire the required skills
  4. Models and working practice to facilitate the exchange of skills
