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 candidates 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.
Since March 2021 the Starter Track is in full swing!
