The CODATA-Helsinki Workshop on FAIR RDM in Institutions will take place at
the National Archives of Finland on 20-21 October 2019. It is a collocated
event before the 14th RDA Plenary Meeting, Helsinki, Finland.

The organisers and programme committee invites presentations and
posters for this workshop. The deadline for proposals is Friday 6
September. Given the relatively short time before the event, there will not
be an extension. We aim to notify accepted speakers by Friday 13 September.

*Research Data and Research Institutions*Research data are an asset for
research institutions. Their creation, management and stewardship imposes
considerable responsibilities and requires partnership and alignment with
other institutions and research initiatives globally. All over the world
universities and libraries have started the task of developing research
data services, many aspiring to cover 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 university, library, IT centre, faculties and other

FAIR Research Data Management involves robust planning, policies,
infrastructure, training and support. Institutes that produce and consume
data are required to ensure seamless accessibility to data and ensure
practices that foster its reuse. Often institutes are less aware of
existing good practices and progress in implementing Institutional Research
Data Management. Improved awareness and knowledge sharing can help reduce
duplication in initiatives, and avoid redundant and inefficient practices
at various points in the data lifecycle. There is a widely recognised need
to assist knowledge sharing between institutions and to do this in an
increasingly structured way, by using (and where necessary refining)
maturity models such as the DCC RISE. Equally, effective knowledge sharing
can help reduce the gap between rich and poor institutions and
between universities or research organisations in economically advantaged
and disadvantaged contexts. Effective RDM practices can also make the
process for sharing and reusing data more streamlined and efficient,
thereby enabling research to be more efficient and driving greater impacts
to be achieved out of research.
It is timely for actors in the various dimensions of such initiatives
internationally to share their practical experiences, research and insights.

*Themes and Guidelines for Proposals*Please consult the call for
presentations and posters for themes and guidelines for submissions:

*Workshop Programme*The event will start at 12:30 (TBC) on Sunday 20
October and will conclude at 18:00 (TBC) on Monday 21 October. the
programme will feature at least two keynotes, parallel sessions of
presentations on the workshop themes, and discursive workshop activities
around the issues of benchmarking and maturity models for FAIR RDM in
Institutions. Refreshments on both days and lunch on Monday 21 October will
be provided.

*Registration Fees*In order to contribute towards our costs (conference
management system, refreshment breaks and lunch on Mon 21 October), but
also to deter spurious and speculative registrations, which on previous
events have greatly added to our workload, the programme committee has
agreed to charge a registration fee of 40 euros.
