MecaNano Winter School

November 11 - November 13

Digitization has increased the effectiveness and sustainability of scientific workflows tremendously. Today we can use systems that, while we generate research data, associate, keep track and manage related contextual (meta)data in a digital and (semi-)automated manner.

At the same time many labs stand at the brink of deciding and implementing certain software solutions in their workflows being confronted to many questions:

  • What are the required ingredients of such a system?
  • How do these components need to work together for effectively managing data in the scientific context?
  • What metadata do I need to collect?
  • How can I ensure my data can be used further?
  • How is metadata effectively collected and managed?

In this winter-school we will take a look “under the hood” and explore what essential components are needed for an exemplary research data management system. The school will consist of lectures but have a focus on active involvement of participants in group discussions, and hands-on development and programming sessions.
