Research Councils and funding bodies are increasingly requiring evidence of adequate and appropriate provisions for data management and curation in new grant funding applications. This one-day workshop provides an introduction to digital curation, the range of activities and roles that should be considered when planning and implementing new projects, and an overview of tools that can assist with curation activities. The target audience for these workshops are researchers and those who support research activity (data managers, information specialists) with funding body data management and curation mandates to fulfil. A key goal for these workshops is to bring together different communities of practice to share their experiences and to identify where, when and how they can best cooperate to meet data curation challenges.
