Research Data Management - Planning, Engagement and Impact: Library Research Spotlight

This session will highlight valuable insights into data handling, publishing and real-world impact for both early-career and senior researchers.

About this event

Good research data management is central to open science and research, a concept recently endorsed by UNESCO which promotes making knowledge more accessible, transparent and re-usable for diverse community stakeholders to improve our shared futures. This session features two experts in their fields who work closely with data and data infrastructure and who will present on challenges of design and implementation with their data-rich research.

Rowland Mosbergen is a Research Data Management Policy Advisor at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, who will discuss research computing platforms and workflow solutions that involve collaboration between researchers, engineers, librarians and other key stakeholders.

Carl Higgs is a Research Fellow and PhD candidate in the Healthy Livable Cities Lab of the Centre for Urban Research at RMIT University who will discuss the research data management approaches he has adopted through his work developing spatial indicators of livability for urban environments using an open science ethos.

The session will be run by RMIT's Research Data Librarian Adam Rivett (who is also administrator of the University's data publishing platform, Figshare) and will provide valuable insights into data handling, publishing and real-world impact for both early-career and senior researchers.

If you register and cannot attend, a follow-up email with the webinar recording, along with any presentation material, will be sent to you by email following the event.
