The name for the course – Essentials 4 Data Support – refers to the main goal of the course: teaching the basic knowledge and skills (essentials) to enable a data supporter to take the first steps towards supporting researchers in storing, managing, archiving and sharing their research data.
In addition to acquiring knowledge, it is the practicing and sharing of this knowledge which is key to Essentials 4 Data Support. You can take this course in three ways.
The course is offered by Research Data Netherlands (RDNL). 300 data supporters have already been trained in the past 5 years. There are still a few places available for the next course (course days October, 8 and November, 19).
