1st Community Workshop: Advocating cross-community Data Management in Neuroscience – Mapping Community Resources and Needs

Date and place: 20 September 2019; Technische Universit├Ąt Berlin

NFDI Neuroscience is committed to organize and sustain cross-community data management in neuroscience by bringing together researchers and technology providers to develop processes for data management with specific emphasis on neuroscience. The first workshop of the consortium focused on bringing together and building up a strong community of neuroscientists who wish to excel their research by exploiting their data in the best possible and most comprehensive way. The workshop zoomed in on the resources already available within the community and the needs and wishes that still need to be addressed.
