In collaboration with CODATA China, CODATA is running an International
Training Workshop Open Data for Better Science.  The workshop will take
place in at the Computer Network Information Center, Chinese Academy of
Sciences, Beijing from 16-29 July 2017.  The workshop is targeted at early
career researchers as well as from research leaders and managers of
research institutes from countries with developing or emerging economies.
Participation for successful applicants will be financially
supported, thanks to a grant from the Chinese Academy of Sciences
(CAS).  The deadline for applications is 25 April.

The training program offered aims to engage participants with a number of
facets of data science and data management in the Big Data age.  Topics
include, but are not limited to, interdisciplinary applications
of open research data, data intensive research, data management policies,
cloud computing, visualization, analytics and data infrastructure
development in the Big Data Age.  Through a mix of theoretical
study, workshop and practical sessions as well as field visits, the
organizers aim to help participants develop a deeper expertise in the
latest Big Data technologies for scientific discovery.

A number of activities will be organized involving elite
Chinese scientists, in order to promote knowledge sharing and to develop
opportunities for future exchanges and collaboration.  Participants will
benefit also from visits to a number of leading research institutes of the
Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).  In these visits, participants
will have the opportunity to learn from the scientific approach, management
expertise, knowledge development and practical application which
characterize activities at CAS institutes working at the frontiers of
research.  Furthermore, the program will promote interaction and exchange
