It’s already August… Time flies when you’re having fun! This month’s round-up from 4TU.ResearchData delivers plenty of community updates, job opportunities and exciting Autumn events direct to your inbox.
- The power of sharing wind energy data and code
At the beginning of the year, TU Delft Airborne Wind Energy researcher, Mark Schelbergen, was nominated for an Open Initiatives Trophy award and received a special mention during the Open Science Festival for his inviting attitude toward FAIR data and Open Science.
Read about Mark’s research project in collaboration with Kitepower B.V.; how he’s mentored by supervisor, Roland Schmehl; and, his reasons for publishing data & code in 4TU.ResearchData.
- Check out our community working groups!
This year, we launched working groups for data stewards and other research data management support professionals from the 4TU.ResearchData partner institutions to work collaboratively on topics related to…
- FAIR & reproducible code
- Privacy & GDPR
- Engagement & Education
