Research Data Network Events

Information on past and upcoming RDN events


The Research Data Network events are a series of research data network workshops, which aim to bring together people in the higher education sector to exchange knowledge around the practical implementation of research data management (RDM). It offers participants a place to demonstrate practical research data management implementations and to discuss current issues relating to research data in institutions.

The event is aimed at anyone interested in research data management including research data management practitioners, institutional staff who are investigating the implementation of research data management systems, as well as system suppliers and developers who are working with universities on research data management. It’s also worth noting that you don’t have to be demonstrating something to attend. Those who only want to network and observe are welcome.

Submit an idea

RDN events include a mix of Jisc and community updates in the programme. If you would like to submit an idea for the next event please add it to the following page - Topics for discussion at future RDN events.

These events will be of interest to anyone engaged in research data management, including those developing services and solutions, funders and policy makers in this space.
