Learn about the crucial issues affecting sustainable data infrastructure

One of the main issues in the field of data infrastructure and management is sustainability, with legal concerns being one area of specific focus. EUDAT is here to help: its Legal Issues in Research Data Collection and Sharing series provides essential information to help providers better understand the issues which affect them. The course, aimed at researchers, data managers and citizen scientists, is currently composed of three modules: Intellectual Property Rights, Personal Data and Service Provider Liability and Terms of Service. Learn more and download the training presentations from the EUDAT website.

Be a part of the European Ontology Network (EUON) – workshop 25 September

Community-driven and voluntary, EUON brings together people working in ontology and the broader area of semantics in Europe. By sharing experience and expertise, participants can discover how semantics are applied and tools used in different fields, as well as grappling with issues such as standardising terminology. A EUON workshop is being organised as part of the EUDAT conference featuring talks by Professor Robert Stevens (University of Manchester) and Jean-Pierre Evain (European Broadcasting Union). Interested in participating? The call for abstracts has been extended to 7 July – submit yours now via the EUDAT website.

And finally… the EUDAT conference will bring together users and providers of data infrastructure from all over Europe, so don’t miss your chance to get to know your colleagues in the field. Networking cocktails on 24 and 25 September offer the ideal opportunity to meet likeminded professionals and follow up on ideas. We look forward to seeing you there!.
