Data Tree was a free online self-paced course, funded by NERC, with all you need to know for research data management, along with ways to engage and share data with business, policymakers, media and the wider public. It was especially aimed at PhD students and early career researchers, but would be useful for any scientist who wants to develop the right data habits, including thinking of end users of your data.

The course was launched with a series of free, fun and interactive workshops that explored a key theme in more detail. We wanted smart and picky PhD students and early career researchers to come along.

  • 21 June 2018 - Communicating with the media and public (Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation)
  • 29 June 2018 - Publishing papers and data (Institute of Physics, London)
  • 2 July 2018 - Data visualisation (University of Birmingham)
  • 10 July 2018 - Engaging with public policymakers (University of Bristol)
  • 18 July 2018 - Communicating with business (University of Leeds)

All were half-day events, starting at 12:30 for 13:00 until 16:30. You needed to bring a laptop which could be connect to the internet.

Funded by NERC through the National Productivity Investment Fund, the course was targeted at eliminating the data management skills gap and improving communication between academia, industry and policymaking. Data Tree was delivered by the Institute for Environmental Analytics and Stats4SD and supported by the Institute of Physics.
