On May 23, the Federal Ministry for Research, numerous universities and research funding organizations met for a symposium of the Research Data Cluster.
The event addressed “the future of research (data) management”.
Data play an essential role in science, as they are not only generated (= research data) but also processed. They contain valuable knowledge that must be structured and become findable (= research information). The Research Data Cluster is responding to this challenge: Managing the entire data life cycle, from generating, structuring and processing data to making it FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable) is becoming increasingly important for research.
The symposium provided insight into the work, content and challenges of the three Research Data Cluster projects RIS Synergy, FAIR Data Austria and Austrian DataLAB and Services, which illustrated the Cluster’s importance for the future of digitally supported research infrastructure.
Workshops, product demonstrations and training courses showcased concrete project results and practical tools. In addition, presentations and discussions with a focus on support and training presented the immediate benefits of research data management for researchers and scientific administration.
The EOSC Support Office Austria was presented with this poster: Cluster_Symposium_EOSC.
