For those of you who have never experienced Love Data Week before, let me introduce it to you.
This is an international celebration of data. Organisations across the globe host a whole range of events intended for speakers to highlight their own data or to showcase best practices in research data management.
You can learn more about what is happening internationally by visiting the Love Data Week website.
As with every year, there is a theme. For this year and the theme is Data: Agent of Change.
“The theme this year is Data: Agent of Change. Love Data Week is about inspiring your community to use data to bring about changes that matter. Policy change, environmental change, social change… we can move mountains with the right data guiding our decisions.”- Love Data Week website
How are we celebrating this week?
This week we will be keeping active on our blog posts and Twitter account. We have been reviewing our activities over the last year and have found some great stuff.
- We will be talking about Data Management Plans and how to get support with this.
- We will be showcasing the training available to our community all year round.
- We will be looking at interesting statistics from our Research Data Repository.
- Finally, we will be showcasing some of the work from our community.
We’d love to showcase more, so please feel free to comment below for a shoutout.
