In order to meet the great need – in science, economy, and society – for competences in data literacy, data management, and data science, a centralized training offer for doctoral researchers of the member institutions of the alliance is being established. The training is an additional but voluntary offer for doctoral researchers.
Together for everyone!
In the framework of this training for doctoral researchers, the alliance centrally pools and jointly shares its expertise in the basics of research data management and data science. This saves resources and additionally fosters connections across disciplines (and at an early career level at that). Additional players in the training are businesses, primarily from the Bremen region, which have also come to recognize the necessity of building (personnel) resources in the field of research data management and data science.
In the winter semester 2020/2021, a course was offered for students of all disciplines at the University of Bremen in the framework of the program's pilot phase (see below). Following that, a first cycle of the curriculum for doctoral researchers started in March 2021.
The pilot run of the curriculum has been completed in December 2021.
In January 2022, the official launch of the program takes place and the second iteration of the curriculum starts.
