RDM - Data Horror Week
26-10-2020 00:00 30-10-2020 00:00 Online

We - the RDM Support team of the UB - invite you to take part in the Data Horror Week that we organize 26-30 October! The week of Halloween is the week when scary things happen, when horror stories take place, when horror stories are told. This includes our academic horror stories, which we fear, but do not often talk about. Pity, because these stories can teach us a lot about responsible research practices, and, specifically, good data management.

Would you like to join us?

There are several ways to take part:

  • Come to the online Data Conversations meeting: Open Science, Responsible Research Practices, Failures, Setbacks and Resilience  on October 28th, 13:00-14:00

We will talk about the research culture, responsible research practices, and the importance of failures. Research transparency is unthinkable without a safe space to acknowledge and discuss errors and mistakes.

You don’t need any prior knowledge to play this game, but a sense of humor, a mindful attitude, and anything to ward off ghosts are required.

  • Read the creepy stories around data management and the positive lessons learned: www.vu.nl/datahorror
  • Share your own story with the VU community.

We look forward to celebrating the Data Horror Week together with you! 🎃
