Topic of the Symposium: ‘The critical role of university RDM infrastructure
in transforming data to knowledge’

All over the world universities and libraries have started the task of
developing research data services. Ideally such initiatives aim to result
in a complete service portfolio covering the entire research lifecycle:
support in writing proposals and data management plans, repository
infrastructures for the storage of data, support in publishing data,
assignment of persistent identifiers, lecturing in data management, etc.
This broad scope means that such services are often seen as requiring a
joint effort from from university, library, IT centre, faculties and other

Nowhere in the world has such a complete support scenario been perfected.
It is timely for actors in the various dimensions of such initiatives
internationally to share their practical experiences, research and insights.

Please note the range of themes listed below and at
