The workshop is aimed at people who are tasked with training or teaching researchers - at all levels - in how to look after social research data, specifically UK-based lecturers, tutors, graduate teaching assistants and research support staff in universities, colleges and research organisations.

Over one and a half days, participants will work through a series of training modules covering the seven key areas of data management identified by the UK Data Archive. The workshop will conclude with data management clinics giving a chance to discuss participants' individual challenges.

The workshop is free as it is sponsored by the RDI project, and is open to UK researchers and research support staff. We are also offering a limited number of travel and accommodation bursaries.
