RDM Expert Tour Guide: Train the Trainers Workshop

Workshop description

The aim of the workshop is to present the RDM Expert tour guide, which was prepared by CESSDA ERIC Service providers. CESSDA data management experts will train participants in how to use the developed materials in the delivery of training to their researchers. The training event is designed interactively and includes hands-on exercises.

Learning objectives

By the end of the workshop participants will:

  • Understand the structure of the Expert Tour Guide.
  • Know which tools to use and where to find information.
  • Know the arguments and relevant considerations for making data openly available while still meeting the needs of data protection (in accordance with legislative and ethical requirements).
  • Gain knowledge of the RDM module and be able to apply it to local training events.


Prior knowledge of open science, open access, research or data archiving is recommended.

Target group

The primary target audience for participation in this event is employees of CESSDA Service Providers and CESSDA partnering organisations, as well as employees of affiliated organisations and research institutions, tasked with providing training on research data management to the social science research community, or planning to deliver such a training in the future. We expect that participants will use their gained knowledge to deliver research data management training locally or internationally.
