EUDAT Summer School 2023


The EUDAT Summer School 2023 will be hosted between the 26 and 30 of June 2023 in Kajaani, Finland.
First deadline: 15 May, Final Deadline: is 26 May.

This edition, organised in collaboration with the DICE project, aims to strengthen the skills required to excel in data management, getting the participants geared up to manage and process data throughout the full, research-data lifecycle (data discovery; data processing; data analysis; data preservation and publishing).

Experienced trainers will guide the students by combining traditional theoretical lessons with hands-on sessions.

Interested applicants are encouraged to apply early as accommodation and travel support will be provided to a limited number of students and participants.

Two Tracks: Users and Providers

A new scope will be introduced in this edition of the EUDAT Summer School. For the first time, we are now offering a Providers Track for research or academic institution IT system administrators, community or data managers looking at providing research data services for their communities, in particular those that are interested in learning how to deploy EUDAT services.

The Users Track will continue providing early career or Bachelor, Masters, PhD or Postdoc programme students currently engaged in complex research environments with the latest best practices in research data management covering the complete research data lifecycle.

Please note that these are tentative schedules. While topics may be fixed, the titles may change closer to the date.
