Facilitating FAIR practices in research methods, data, and software in Natural and Engineering Sciences – an example from the Dutch landscape
This webinar will present the concept of Thematic Digital Competence Centres (TDCCs) within the broader context of RDM landscape in the Netherlands where they were formed. It will focus in more detail on the TDCC for the Natural & Engineering Sciences (TDCC-NES), outlining the 1st year of its existence. TDCC-NES is a national network organisation in the Netherlands that brings together researchers, local DCC’s, infrastructure providers, knowledge and expertise networks, as well as other strategic initiatives within the NES domain. TDCC-NES aims to facilitate researchers to manage data and software in a FAIR manner by identifying bottlenecks and initiating projects to mitigate them. It is funded by NWO, one of the main Dutch research funders, and has links to national Open Science initiatives. The webinar will showcase TDCC-NES network activities, its governance structure, and project programme, including the first funded projects and their expected outcomes. It will also explore links to international initiatives across NES disciplines with potential for collaboration.
