The *CODATA-RDA Research Data Science Summer School
training in the foundational skills of Research Data Science. Contemporary
research – particularly when addressing the most significant,
transdisciplinary research challenges – cannot be done effectively without
a range of skills relating to data.

The school is held at the [International Centre for Theoretical
<https://www.ictp.it/>* running from August 5-16. The venue, the Adriatico
Guest House, is a delightful self-contained site, overlooking the sea,where
there is accommodation, lecture halls, a terminal room and a canteen.

This year the school will be running a parallel strand that is oriented to
students who are interested in Data Stewardship.

The curriculum for these students will be

   - Open Science
   - Introduction to Unix Shell
   - Programming for Analysis
   - Git
   - Research Data Management
   - Author Carpentry
   - Introduction to Information Security
   - Metadata & Persistent Identifiers
   - Data discovery and automated DMP’s
   - Repositories
   - Ontologies
   - Linked data

The first week of the school will be for both Early Career Reseachers
(ECR’s) and Data Stewards. The seocnd week will break into two parallel
strands, one focussing on Data Science techniques for ECR’s and the other
for Data Stewards.

The provisional detailed programme can be found here
a breakdown of the shared and separate courses.

Graduate students or ECR’s considering a career in Data Stewardship and
Early Career Data Stewards would benefit most from this school.

This school is a part of a planned series of CODATA-RDA schools that will
run in Europe as part of the *FAIRsFAIR initiative

There is space for 5 students who wish to take the Data Steward strand.
Students wishing to attend this strand will need to cover their
accommodation and travel expenses to the school but there are no
registration fees. Single rooms at the Adriatico start at €50 per night.

As this is a pilot students attending this strand will be interviewed
afterwards to get feedback to improve the curriculum.

Candidates interested in attending should contact the director of the Data
Steward strand, *Hugh Shanahan <//hugh.shanahan at rhul.ac.uk>* before June 1.
