New award for engagement in good data management

News: 2017-12-21

A competition has been launched by the University of Cambridge, SPARC Europe and Jisc to elicit new ideas for engaging researchers in the practices of good research data management. The award, called the Data Management Engagement Award, will give one winner up to £1750.

The winning idea should be applicable and transferable to a broad range of countries, institutions, settings and disciplines. It should also have the potential for wide impact by engaging as many people as possible in better and preferably open data management practices. Finally, to be easily reusable the idea should not require a large budget to execute.

The deadline for applications is 31 January 2018.
