Helmholtz Open Science Practice Forum

Research Data Management

February 3, 2022, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Research data management (RDM) is a relevant topic at all Helmholtz Centers. The Helmholtz Open Science Office regularly provides impulses around the topic of RDM in the context of its Helmholtz Open Science Online Seminars as well as in the context of its project work.

To share best practices and to foster the RDM community within the Association, the Helmholtz Open Science Office will host the first "Helmholtz Open Science Practive Forum Research Data Management" online on February 3, 2022, from 10 am to 3 pm.

In this Helmholtz-internal forum, different approaches from Helmholtz Centers to organize research data management will be presented as examples. In addition, the focus will be on concrete service offerings regarding RDM. Furthermore, networking activities with external actors, e.g. in the context of NFDI, EOSC or RDA, will be highlighted.

The practical forum is designed to provide sufficient time for discussion, as community building is a key concern of the event.

Please note that the forum will be held in German.


The virtual practice forum is aimed at employees of the Helmholtz Association.

Registration is free of charge and the number of participants is not limited.
