Free RDM Trainings and Information Events

To actively spread knowledge on research data management, we offer our own range of training courses. The content of the courses is orientated towards the research data life cycle:

Our training courses cover e.g. handling tools such as data management plans, meeting requirements made by funding organizations and generic research data management. The courses are designed to comply with your demands – feel free to get in touch with us.

In addition, the "HeFDI" project, in which the JLU is also involved, now offers a wide range of training courses and information on various aspects of research data management, which is available to all Hessian universities free of charge and is regularly repeated and also expanded. In the following, we would like to draw your attention to some of the offers from HeFDI. You can register via the linked pages.


HeFDI Data School

In the HeFDI Data School, we offer cross-location and cross-disciplinary training courses on the topic of research data management. The Data School is aimed at doctoral students and research staff at Hessian universities; the training courses take place online and are free of charge. The Data School is divided into basic and focus modules.

The basic modules of the HeFDI Data School serve as a (first) orientation in research data management. Basic terms are explained and common methods and best practices are presented.

The focus modules of the HeFDI Data School offer an in-depth insight into selected sub-areas of research data management. Basic knowledge in FDM is advantageous, but not mandatory.


HeFDI Data Talks

The HeFDI Data Talks are a two-weekly open information and discussion event. Every second Friday, we present online offers and services for data management and discuss current topics. Currently, this includes in particular the consortia of the National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI) with their offers. However, local and regional services as well as general information and discussions on data management are also addressed in the Data Talks. If you have suggestions or concerns about topics, please feel free to contact the HeFDI office at .

The Data Talks take place as a web conference and everyone can participate free of charge. At the beginning, the experts provide input for about 30 to 40 minutes, followed by an opportunity for discussion and questions.
