EVERY MONTH THE DCC PICKS A SUBJECT TO PUT IN THE SPOTLIGHT: OUR MONTHLY THEME. THERE WILL BE INFORMATION AVAILABLE ABOUT THAT THEME ON OUR WEBSITE, A NEWSLETTER WILL BE SENT OUT WITH ADDITIONAL INFORMATION, AND WE ORGANIZE AN INTERACTIVE SESSION AROUND THAT THEME AT THE END OF EACH MONTH.
The DCC thematic sessions will be organized on Tuesdays -16:00-17:00 - every last week of the month starting from October 2021.
THIS MONTH'S THEME: 'RESEARCH LIFE CYCLE, ICT & SUPPORT'
After a nice summer break, the University of Twente’s DCC thematic sessions are back with full energy and with new interesting topics. After the summer break, we had the fourth thematic session in September about 'UT DCC: What’s in it for me?'. The recordings and the presentations of the thematic session can be found on the UT DCC webpage.
The DCC is happy to announce its fifth thematic session to you! On Tuesday, October 26th, from 16:00-17:00, the next DCC thematic session will take place. The theme of this month is dedicated to the support of ICT and the thematic session is titled “ Research Life Cycle, ICT & Support”.
DCC is a hub translating the needs of researchers into innovative ICT and RDM support services. For more information about this topic, visit our website.
The program of this sessions is as follows:
ICT Account Managers will talk about their role on the Research Life Cycle and How ICT Account Managers support researchers during this journey starting from the preparation to the long term preservation and archiving. They will present about the tools and services that they developed to make this a pleasant researcher-oriented journey in the different stages of the Research Life Cycle.
The tools and services to be covered during the thematic session are Data Management Plan (DMP) tool, Decision Tree tool (where can I store/share, or how can I transfer data during my research), Content Collaboration Platform (CCP), and last but not least AREDA (Achieve REsearch DAta).
Discussion, Q&A, closing
A short description of these services:
The DMP-tool is the UT tool for writing your data management plan (DMP) and the notification of the processing of personal data in research in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR registration).
The DMP part of the DMP-tool has a generally accepted structure which complies to the policy of funders like NWO and ZonMw. The EU allows you to deliver a DMP based on this form as well.
- The DMP-tool can be found https://webapps.utwente.nl/dmp.
- More information about DMPs can be found at the Writing your DMP, which is part of the research data management websites.
Decision Tree Tool:
WHERE CAN I STORE/SHARE, OR HOW CAN I TRANSFER DATA DURING MY RESEARCH?
The University of Twente has an overall policy on how to handle research data. This policy serves as a starting point for tailored data policies of faculties and/or institutes, and research groups. It becomes clear when you read the Research Support website and by answering the questions inside the UT DMPtool which requirements are set for services with regard to transfer, store or share research data during your research. These requirements can be used to answer the questions in the decision tree 'storage of research data'. As result a list of services offered by LISA will be shown.
This decision tree can be found at https://webapps.utwente.nl/dmp/fr/RDM/Storage-Decision-Tree/new
CCP: A Content Collaboration Platform (CCP) is a platform for storing, sharing and collaborating on research data with other researchers. Together with researchers, LISA is building a CCP as an ICT service. Nextcloud is a CCP. The research data is stored in the UT data center (which is ISO27001 and NEN7510 certified storage).
AREDA: Areda (Archive REsearch DAta) is the University of Twente archive for the long-term storage of static data collected, generated or used in UT research projects. But archiving is more than just storing data after your research. Metadata must be added, so datasets can be findable, whereas proper documentation is needed for interpretation and verification, as well as interoperability and reuse of the data. Therefore Areda is linked to the UT research information system (Pure), for adding metadata, while documentation can be included in a README file.
We hope to see all of you on the 26th! Register via our events page, to make sure you won’t miss it!
