Invitation to the workshop 'Data Management Plans Policy'

Published on
April 13, 2015

On 1 May 2015 Wageningen Graduate Schools and Wageningen UR Library host a workshop on Data Management Plans Policies at Wageningen UR.

In 2014, all chair groups at Wageningen University had to develop a Data Management Policy. Such  policy makes sure that all data can be found: not only now, but also in the future. It harmonizes the practices of data management and guarantees that all results remain accessible and usable.

There are many ways to create a policy, and there are many issues to address. The Wageningen Graduate Schools are pleased to invite you to discuss some of these issues in a workshop on Data Management Plans Policy.

Date    1 May 2015

Time    3 pm to 5 pm
