Research data are the basics and outcome of scientific work. An aware and sustained handling of research data improves the effectivity of research and is an integral part of good scientific practice.
Based on the life cycle of research data, the course provides a brief introduction to the concepts of research data management (RDM) and an overview of the services and infrastructure offered by RWTH Aachen University.
