Most research funders (research councils, charities and foundations) have introduced policies on research data management. The general expectation is that data from publicly funded research projects should be made openly available with as few restrictions as possible.

If you have any questions or if you would like to know more about research data requirements and help offered by the University of Cambridge, come to the ‘Open Data’ session (open to all researchers, staff and research students at the University of Cambridge).

There are several sessions, at four different locations: 

Wednesday 6 May, Clinical School Seminar Room 3, 11:30 – 12:30, register here
Thursday 7 May, Mill Lane Lecture Room 6, 12:30 - 13:30, register here
Wednesday 13 May, Institute for Manufacturing LT1&2, 12:30 – 13:30, register here
Tuesday 19 May, Computer Lab LT2, 16:00 - 17:00, register here

Open Data sessions will:

provide you with all the necessary information you need to know about your funder requirements for research data sharing
explain how to avoid sanctions for non-compliance with your funder policies
allow you to ask any questions you might have directly to the Open Data team

Sessions are open to everyone: 

principal investigators
research staff
administrative staff

If you have any questions about open data sessions, please contact
