In today's changing research environment, RDM is important in all stages of research. The skills and know how in RDM that researchers and research support staff need, should be nurtured all though their career.
To compare approaches in RDM training within the partnership's member countries, in 2015 a survey was conducted to provide an overview of the RDM training landscape. In 2016 a workshop was held to share successful approaches to RDM training and capacity building.
After the workshop report 'Training for Research Data Management: Comparative European Approaches' was published, Knowledge Exchange published a set of recommendations for the creation of an international repository for information on training resources.
To make existing nationally focused training material Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR) an international initiative is needed to establish a repository or platform to deposit or link Training Materials on RDM. Knowledge Exchange is currently in touch with FOSTER Plus to host a repository for Training Materials on RDM.
