Awareness in Research Data Management

All universities deal intensively with the topic of IT security and people’s awareness. One of the campaigns running at ETH is the PROTECT YOUR BRAINWORK. campaign. Let’s take a look at the EPFL library in Lausanne and their solution for IT security awareness.

Research Data Management Horror Stories

In the middle of February the Love Data Week 2020 took place: An international event designed to raise awareness for research data management (RDM). The RDM team at EPFL has launched a campaign to mark the occasion. It includes five videos produced by library staff and researchers. The five sequences feature so-called “RDM horror stories”, i.e. horror scenarios related to research data management. These sensitize the viewers and future data horror stories are hopefully avoided.
