The Community brings together staff from all faculties and central support services who have a role to play in research data management (RDM) support.
The Community will contribute to a thematic network on data management that will be built within Leiden Research Support (LRS).
The aims of the Community are:
- To contribute to the development of RDM support services across the university.
- To communicate with others and exchange knowledge about best practices in RDM.
- To develop relationships and set-up collaborative working groups.
- To develop workflows and materials that support Leiden researchers in practical RDM.
- To learn more about RDM developments taking place at Leiden University, in the Dutch support community, and beyond.
- To provide a forum for raising ideas and suggestions for the development of RDM support at Leiden.
