Research Data Management in Chemistry
This training is intended for chemistry researchers who want to know basic information on research data management (RDM). The topics include why RDM is important, what are the stages of the data lifecycle and what to consider at each step, and the services Aalto provides for data management.
Who can participate?
The webinar is aimed at Aalto CHEM staff and students who are interested in an introduction to RDM. However, anyone interested in the topic is free to participate. No prior knowledge of RDM is required. The webinar is free of charge.
- What does RDM entail within the field of chemistry
- The lifecycle of data and what to consider at each step of the process
- What services and support are available at Aalto for research data management
A one-hour webinar with a presentation and a Q&A.
Schedule and location
The training will be held online via Zoom on November 17, at 1–2 PM Eastern European Time (EET).

"I believe that data management is one of the keys to successful research. It is crucial for the reuse of data for future projects. It helps to keep the research data safe and increases its quality and efficiency, especially when working with multiple collaborators." –Charlotte
"Data is fundamental for supporting the communication of science. In my opinion, the action of including all used data and clear descriptions related to it will soon become a necessity in scientific communications, moving towards openness and transparency. However, the availability of ever-growing information requires planned ways to enable data to be found and used by people with different backgrounds." –Pedro
