Dear All,

We are pleased to announce that the following SIB course:

Research Data Management and Data Management Plan

which will take place in person only at the University of Bern on 27 - 28 October 2022 is now open for applications.

Recent studies have shown that worldwide, between 51% and 89% of published life sciences research is not reproducible, with consequent losses estimated at around $100 billion/year in biomedical research. These studies have made it clear that the research data associated with a publication are fundamental to validate the published analyses and results. Many causes contribute to this lack of reproducibility in life science studies such as a lack of rigor in data management and analysis. This extensive problem related to improper research management has urged scientists to consider developing efficient Research Data Management Strategies and implementing robust Data Management Plans (DMP) for their research projects. This need is also reflected in the requirements of funding agencies, amongst which the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNFS) and Horizon 2020.

This 1.5-day course will provide you with effective support to produce high quality DMP complying with the guidelines established by funding agencies. Importantly, it will provide you with tools to generate robust data and excellent quality studies that follow the FAIR principles to make your data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable.

Further detailed information, prerequisites and application form are available here<https://www.sib.swiss/training/course/20221027_RDMP>.

Have a nice day,
