Training Team

At DANS we aim to deliver high-quality training content in a responsible and engaging manner. DANS Training is thus characterised by some commitments that we, as the Training Team, have made. We further prioritise engagement by ensuring that all our training materials follow current best practice for accessibility. DANS Training has also made a commitment to reducing our carbon footprint, so we are continually working to deliver the greenest events possible through conscious decisions about catering, travel, storage of materials, and bandwidth.
We are happy to discuss your training needs. Please contact us if you’d like to discuss a workshop or course.

Training Topics

Currently we offer training on Open Science, Open and FAIR Data, Research Data Management (RDM), Archiving and repository management, Data ethics and GDPR.

We have prepared FAQs on these topics. Is your question not among them? Then please contact us.

Training Materials

You can find our materials on Zenodo in our DANS training community, as well as on our Moodle (under development).

DANS has co-developed a wide range of training through its involvement in consortia projects. A few of the modules that DANS helped to create that relate to our training interests are: Data Stewardship Training (EOSC Synergy), Developing quality training (online, EOSC Synergy), Social Sciences and Humanities Open Cloud training (SSHOC), FAIRsFAIR training library (FAIRsFAIR).

We are currently working on a number of projects that will be delivering training and training materials in the near future. Please keep an eye on the following projects: EOSC FutureFAIRCore4EOSCPATTERNFAIR-ImpactBY-COVIDDICE.

Collaborations

We regularly offer training together with our partners in Open and Responsible Research Training. Our network includes Research Data Netherlands (RDNL), the Nationaal Programma Open Science (NPOS), Landelijk Coördinatiepunt Research Data Management, the Data Stewards Interest Group (DSIG), the Netherlands Open Science Communities, and Research Software Training Netherlands (RSTNL). Partner organisations include the eScience Centre, 4TU, SURF, and the Thematic Digital Competence Centres.

DANS is also an active member of a number of European Research Infrastructure Consortia (ERICs) such as the Consortium of European Social Science Data Archives (CESSDA), Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities (DARIAH) and the European Holocaust Research Initiative (EHRI). DANS is also the national Open Access desk (NOAD) coordinator for OpenAIRE.

We are happy to present a new updated version of the ODISSEI Portal. In this new version of the Portal we implemented a first prototype of the so-called Data Access Broker (DAB). In addition, more information is available, for instance through ELSST, to improve the search results. The ODISSEI team also worked on a Dutch translation of the user interface. With this new version we introduce an even more user-friendly Portal for the social sciences community. We are happy to explore the different new features and what they mean to you as a user.

Registration is now open until June 4th for what promises to be an exciting event in the digital humanities domain.

On the 13th of April last, the NRC published a background article on ‘what goes wrong in data research’. For this, Ingrid Dillo, Senior Advisor at DANS, was interviewed by Laura Wismans. In this article, Ingrid Dillo explains that available data are not always of good quality and that there is still much work to be done in the area of sharing and reusing data.

DANS has made the article available below and freely translated into English. No changes have been made to the original content.
