From 17-28 June 2019, a 10-day school is being organized by RDA, the African Open Science Platform (AOSP), the Ethiopian Academy of Sciences (EAS), CODATA, the International Centre of Theoretical Physics and the East African Institute for Fundamental Research, which will be conducted at Addis Ababa University to introduce participants to the skills of Research Data Science.
To apply to this school, you must submit your application by 10 May 2019.
This school is open to researchers in every field. The data skills taught are also useful for (data) librarians and other research support staff, such as those who envisage a career as data steward or data analysts. Furthermore, people who are more advanced in their careers who would like to improve their data skills as a form of continuing professional development are also eligible. Selection of participants will be based on their technical background and also the urgency of their needs to apply the tools of RDS.
There is no registration fee for this event. Some support for travel and accommodation is available and its allocation will be determined during the selection process.
