Bern Data Talks: Presented by the Research Data Support of Bern University Library and the Open Science Unit of the Bern University of Applied Sciences.

A new Bern Data Talks are informal exchange events with short talks (English, 10 min) held by researchers around research data and research data management. There will also be time for networking with colleagues. So don't miss the Apéro after the event!

Topic: Preparing data for publication

Publishing research data in the sense of the FAIR data principles is an important step in the course and at the end of research projects. However, preparing data for publication can be challenging and time-consuming.

As a stimulus for exchange about challenges, good practices, and possible solutions, there will be short presentations from current projects by:

- Prof. Dr. Tobias Hodel (University of Bern, Digital Humanities).

- Prof. Dr. Stefan Brönnimann (University of Bern, Institute of Geography)

- Thilo Hirsch (Bern University of Applied Sciences, Bern University of the Arts)

Young scholars as well as experienced researchers from all disciplines are welcome! (University of Bern) and (Bern University of Applied Sciences)
