The DCN is collaborating with the Office of Data Science Strategy (ODSS), in partnership with the National Library of Medicine (NLM), to organize an event series. This series of webinars, workshops, and training opportunities are being offered in advance of the upcoming changes to the NIH data management and sharing policies.
The first event provided an introduction to data curation & services for researchers, in which DCN members Jake Carlson and Mikala Narlock presented “Life rafts in a sea of data.” The DCN as joined by Peace Ossom-Williamson, Associate Director of the National Center for Data Services based at The Network of the National Library of Medicine (view recording).
In July, DCN members Jake Carlson, Jen Darragh, Dave Fearon, and Mikala Narlock hosted the second event, a virtual workshop geared toward program officers titled: Towards Authenticity: Critical Appraisal of Data Management Plans.
At this point, we are halfway through the series, with two training sessions coming in Winter 2022 and Spring 2023. These workshops, one virtual and the other in person, will build on the DCN’s CURATE(D) curriculum. More information about dates and registration will be shared in the coming months– follow our workshop page or DCN Twitter (@WeAreDCN) for updates!
