The first webinar is arranged on Thursday 16 May, 16:00–17:00, by UK Data Service, and is an introduction for anyone who wants to learn about data management. The webinar provides an overview of how to manage, document, and store research data well, and how to plan and implement good data management in research projects in order to optimise data sharing. Some topics that will be discussed in the webinar are writing a data management plan, ethical and legal issues in sharing and managing confidential information, and effective data documentation.

The two other webinars are arranged on Tuesday 21 May within the SERISS project framework. From 10:00–11:30FORS (Swiss Centre of Expertise in the Social Sciences) organise an introduction to data management for making research data available for sharing via a certified repository (such as SND). The webinar addresses issues such as data documentation, data anonymisation, and the FAIR principles. Later in the afternoon, 14:30–15:30, GESIS (Leibniz-Institute for the Social Sciences) arrange a webinar on the CESSDA Data Catalogue and how to find and re-use research data.
