About this event

You are invited to join us for a workshop series regarding data management and data management infrastructure, hosted by MERIDIAN. Each session will focus on different aspects of data management, so you are welcome to only attend those which interest you the most. Space is limited, so please register early to ensure your attendance!

Webinar 7: Join our guest from Portage for a discussion about data management plans, and a hands-on session walking you through the Portage Data Management Planning tool. This will include some discussion on the value of data management plans, common roadblocks, as well as tips and tricks for writing your own data management plan. This session should be especially helpful for participants applying for grants or research funding, as data management plans are increasingly a requirement of these applications.
