More and more surveys are conducted both qualitatively and quantitatively to approach complex issues. During this online lecture, the added value of this and the challenges you may encounter in doing so will be discussed from various angles. For example, how do you ensure good cooperation between quantitative and qualitative researchers? In which research areas can mixed-methods research offer an appropriate solution? And what innovative ways are there to shape mixed-methods research? SCP, Sciensano (Belgian public health research centre) and I&O/Ipsos will share their experiences. This lecture will be held in Dutch.

Open Hour SSH

Get all your questions answered during Open Hour for the SSH community. A live Q&A every Monday morning.

At National Research Software Day, researchers, policymakers, Research Software Engineers and community leaders are invited to come together to celebrate the power of collaboration and community for quality research software.

We will look into the possibilities for sharing and reusing data when doing qualitative research. Ricarda Braukmann, data station manager at DANS, will present the guidebook and decision tree that she and her colleagues have created to assist their researchers in this matter. We will also give the floor to researchers to share their success stories and/or challenges when trying to open up their research. Our goal is to discover which approach qualitative researchers could follow to adhere to the Open Science principles.

Research, and how it is conducted, is ever-changing and requires those that are tasked in its support to also keep up-to-date in Research Data Management, Open Access and Open Science in general. OpenAIRE's train-the-trainer bootcamps aim at empowering trainers with the knowledge and the know-hows of Open Science so they can pass it onto the researchers and students themselves, and ultimately help create a more open, transparent and accessible research ecosystem.

The Coalition for Advancing Research Assessment (CoARA) is a group of organisations who work on harmonising the assessment of research. It takes into account practices and activities that maximise the quality and impact of research. It involves basing assessment primarily on qualitative judgment, for which peer review is central, supported by responsible use of quantitative indicators. This FAIR Implementation Workshop - "Assessing national current FAIR-enabling capabilities" will focus on the topic of research assessment to help the selected candidates to draft their FAIR implementation action plan by taking into account the research assessment aspect. Registration is free but mandatory.

This virtual plenary will focus on collaboration and engagement with RDA's global community through the sharing of local experiences, best practices and recommendations. Individuals and groups at all stages of their careers are invited to contribute to the discussions, meet data professionals, and get involved in the RDA community.

At the end of this workshop, you will be able to evaluate and improve the reusability of qualitative data at all stages of the research data life cycle. You will have a rich toolbelt to your disposal when facing the challenges you may encounter when working with qualitative data. This workshop is part of the DCC Spring Training Days and suitable for researchers and research support staff, focused on beginners to the topic.
