2nd Practice Forum Research Data Management

October 20, 2022, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.


To share best practices and to foster the RDM community within Helmholtz, the Helmholtz Open Science Office hosted its first "Helmholtz Open Science Practice Forum Research Data Management" online on February 3, 2022. The high attendance and lively discussions demonstrated a strong need for cross-domain community building in RDM within Helmholtz. A report documents the event.

A follow-up event on October 20, 2022 picked up this thread and spun it further. The following aspects were highlighted through presentations with ample time for discussion:

  • Thinking and linking data, text and research software together
  • Data Stewards, Data Librarians, Research Data Managers, Data Curators... – Their profiles and roles in Helmholtz
  • Data Management Plans – DMPs as Living Documents
