The Research Data Management Roundtables are a series of events targeting librarians who are actively engaged in research data management to create a Community of Practice (COP). At the roundtable librarians will discuss with their colleagues their own experiences and learn from each other. Each roundtable will have a pre-set topic(s) for discussion. The focus is on practical details and learning from each other's experiences.
