    Avoid conflict with the following group (1)
    Professionalising Data Stewardship IG

    Brief introduction describing the activities and scope of the group
    The ETHRD-IG provides a venue for exchanging information about existing developments and initiatives related to education and training on research data handling. Providing necessary education and training is critical to uncovering the benefits of worldwide Open Data activities, realising the potential of data-driven research, and increasing the efficiency and impact of all modes of research, to ultimately improve our world.
    In this session we will be building upon past work of the IG to continue work within the current context of the data professional education environment and contribute to the work of the IG in ways that will benefit existing initiatives and uncover new initiatives, ripe for synergistic contributions. The goal is to address data science and research data handling education and training by facilitating information exchange and cooperation between efforts around the world that are supporting the education of data professionals and training of those handling research data.

    Meeting objectives
    Click here for the collaborative session notes
    In the ever-evolving landscape of research data management, the availability of high-quality training materials is crucial to motivate and support researchers, data professionals, and institutions. This meeting aims to explore existing training materials in RDM, celebrate their contributions, and connect them to previous task group work by utilising the minimal metadata set for learning materials and the core characteristics for providers. We will also identify gaps for future development and focus on learning objectives specific to disciplinary data, ensuring comprehensive and effective training.
     We can achieve this together through:

    Showcasing and celebrating existing education and training materials on research data management 

    Connecting materials to previous task group work by utilising the minimal metadata set for learning materials 

    Engaging participants in identifying gaps in available training materials 

    Developing learning objectives tailored to disciplinary data for improved training outcomes based on existing generic learning objectives

    Please indicate at least (3) three breakout slots that would suit your meeting.
    Breakout 1, Breakout 3, Breakout 6
