‘All Things Data’ Webinar: Increasing University-wide Research Data Management maturity — a journey

27 Oct 2022 2:00pm - 3:00pm AEDT, Online

Please join us for the next webinar in the ‘All Things Data’ series Increasing University-wide Research Data Management maturity — a journey presented by Yvette Wharton and Laura Armstrong (University of Auckland, NZ).


Research Data Management (RDM) is increasingly recognised as a critical knowledge gap for researchers as international and domestic funders, publishers, and ethics committees introduce more stringent requirements regarding Data Management Plans and the collection, storage and sharing of research data.

The University of Auckland | Waipapa Taumata Rau is responding to this evolving research landscape with a strategic RDM programme. Our journey started with several years of education and outreach, before a University-wide RDM stocktake and the development of an integrated Research Data Management framework consistent with international standards, including Māori Data Sovereignty, and FAIR data principles to improve data sharing

We will outline the mahi (work) undertaken to date at Waipapa Taumata Rau and a series of recommendations and initiatives planned to lift RDM capability maturity. This will be of interest to those interested in developing services and increasing maturity in the management of research data.
