Learning outcomes

The aim of the LVA is to teach the correct handling of research data already during education and to create an awareness of topics like Open Science and reproducibility of research at an early stage. Covered are basics such as the FAIR principles, the research data lifecycle, and RDM policies, useful tools like data management plans, persistent identifiers, and licenses, as well as essential technical components of an RDM infrastructure such as repositories and electronic lab notebooks.
