The Winter School will provide state-of-the-art skills and knowledge in handling scientific data across the data life cycle and is a cooperation between the Ecological Society (GfÖ) and the National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI4Biodiversity). Various experts from our partner network (universities, data centers and research institutions) are invited as speakers and will share their knowledge with the participants. In a combination of direct knowledge transfer and practical lessons, participants will be introduced to fundamentals and cutting edge tools in the field and how to use them for their future careers. The winter school provides a unique opportunity to get introduced to advanced knowledge in research data management including the handling of data across technical borders such as combining different programming languages and/or software tools in a very short amount of time.
In order to align training material, content of the lectures and practical lessons specifically to the needs of the participants, we need some information about your background and skills (e.g. level of programming experience, familiar programming tools). Further, you will be asked to fill out a letter of motivation (max. 300 words) and if you are a member of the Ecological Society. GfÖ memebers will be preferred..
