The CODATA-RDA Research Data Science Summer School provides training in the foundational skills of Research Data Science. Contemporary research – particularly when addressing the most significant, transdisciplinary research challenges – cannot be done effectively without a range of skills relating to data. This includes the principles and practice of Open Science and research data management and curation, the use of a range of data platforms and infrastructures, large scale analysis, statistics, visualisation and modelling techniques, software development and annotation and more. We define ‘Research Data Science’ as the ensemble of these skills.
Partners in the school include Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry and the Digital Curation Centre.
This course will largely repeat the format and content of last year’s very successful school. For further information about the content and last year’s event please see http://indico.ictp.it/event/7658/ ;
