Inviting young scientists to TIB’s „FAIR Data and Software“ workshop

FAIR principles

Are you a young scientists and want to be trained in:

  1. implementing the FAIR principles (findable, accessible, interoperable, re-useable) for research data management, and
  2. good practices in managing scientific software engineering projects?

Yes? Then feel invited to submit your registration request for the „FAIR Data and Software“ workshop at the TIB from July 9th to 13th in Hannover, Germany.

Carpentries logoThe Software and Data Carpentries teach basic computing skills to researchers Python logo(Git, R, Python, SQL, etc.) in usually 2 days long workshops. Thanks to a grant from the German Ministry of Education and Research, we are able to pilot the application of those tools in the FAIR treatment of the two important scientific objects data and software.

The workshop is free of charge for you. Snacks, drinks, as well as vegan and non-vegan lunches will be provided throughout the week.

For more details, please visit Please note that this will not be a complete beginner’s introduction to programming, though. We highly recommend some basic experience with R, Python and/or Git.
