After one and a half years of mandatory research data policy, opens an external URL in a new window, the FWF now has the first empirical data, which will be presented to the participants and discussed together during the workshop.  

At the same time, many Austrian institutions offer services for scientists to support them in research data management. They have been able to gain experience in this field over the last years. The workshop will provide an opportunity to get an overview of the existing services for research data management in Austria and will create a platform for further networking activities.

For representatives of research institutions, the event also offers the opportunity to tell the FWF who is responsible for questions on DMPs at their own institution and how the topic of research data management and Open Data is perceived by researchers.
