FAVeR and ANDS Workshop A Success!


Only July 21st, FAVeR and ANDS sponsored the ‘Increasing the Value of Your Data: Lessons Learned from Sharing Collections’ workshop. We had nearly 50 in attendance across e-research sectors and have had fantastic feedback on the workshop survey.

The five presentation slides are available to the public via GoogleDrive:

Takeaways from the event include:

  • Hearing about challenges that people face is helpful.
  • Good to get key players in the room. Interesting talks. Group discussions especially useful.
  • Lots of great stuff happening with research data in our universities.
  • Good networking session. Great to see the diversity of projects.
  • I have identified a couple of presented projects are similar to what we are doing. I have made contacts with the presenters after the workshop.
  • Impressed with the planning demonstrated in launching each of the projects, not to be taken lightly when considering a project at own site.

Survey responses show 50% of participants were ‘Extremely Satisfied’ and 50% of participants were ‘Very Satisfied’ with the event.

We look forward to delivering more workshops in the future. Watch this space!
