WHAT IS DATA TREE?
A free online course with all you need to know for research data management, along with ways to engage and share data with business, policymakers, media and the wider public.
The self-paced course will take 15 to 20 hours to complete in eight structured modules. The course is packed with video, quizzes and real-life examples of data management, along with plenty of additional background information.
The materials will be available for structured learning, but also to dip in for immediate problem solving.
WHO IS IT FOR?
The course is for any scientist, whether you look after your own data or are guided by an organisation.
The course is especially aimed at PhD students and early career researchers but is for anyone who wants to get the right data habits now, including thinking of end-users of your data.
The course is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) through the National Productivity Investment Fund (NPIF), delivered by the Institute for Environmental Analytics and Stats4SD and supported by the Institute of Physics.
