Our training team has a wide range of expertise in Open Science, research data management, and research infrastructures. We offer both disciplinary-specific and general training as in-person, online, and asynchronous sessions/courses. We aim to deliver high-quality training content in a responsible and engaging manner.
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.
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 Future, FAIRCore4EOSC, PATTERN, FAIR-Impact, BY-COVID, DICE.
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.
