  1. Introduction to data management for life science researchers
  2. Introduction to data management planning
  3. Introduction to sections of a generic ​data management plan​
  4. CSC research data management services for life science research

In the first part we go through data management basics, what it means and why it is important to manage research data. The video will also introduces the concept of FAIR data.

Second part discusses why data management planning is vital and what is a data management plan (DMP). We present how to get started in data management planning and what tools are available for creating a DMP.
