The semester programme kicks off tomorrow with a webinar on the topic of data protection-compliant transfer of data to external parties. You are cordially invited to attend this event hosted by the Medical University of Vienna to learn about the correct handling of sensitive data and the specific tasks of a data clearing house. Registration, opens an external URL in a new window is still possible today.
We would also like to take this opportunity to draw special attention to two workshops organised and conducted by the Center for Research Data Management at TU Wien:
Let’s make our data FAIR!
19.10.2021, 10:00 – 11.30
Following the FAIR principles, research objects should be findable, accessible, interoperable and re-usable. These principles form the basis of a trusted environment where researchers, innovators, companies, and citizens can publish, find, and re-use each other’s data and tools for research, innovation, and educational purposes. The FAIR principles refer to any digital object evolving from the research process, that is, quantitative as well as qualitative data, metadata or algorithms, tools, software and services.
It all sounds good in theory, but what can researchers actually do in their everyday research to ensure that their data comply with the FAIR principles? The workshop provides an overview and practical tips for getting started and making the transition.
Introduction to Git
You have heard of GitHub, or GitLab, but are not sure whether such git-based systems are suitable for you? Version Control Systems facilitate effective collaboration between people. Although these tools are mostly used in the field of Software Engineering, they are not limited to this use case.
The aim of this workshop is to learn how to manage your code, data or even text documents, so that you don’t lose track of versions, and can share it with others. You will learn about the basic concepts of git and tools that support researchers in working with git repositories. After a discussion of the theoretical content, practical examples will demonstrate how to efficiently work with the existing GitLab instance operated by the TU Wien. The practical part will also contain scenarios to demonstrate how to avoid or fix common pitfalls.
