NFDI-Matwerk Summer School 2023 – Research Data Management in Materials Science and Enginnering

PhD-students working in experimental and/or modeling/simulation in any field of materials science and engineering (with or without experience in FDM) with basic knowledge on programming (e.g. in Python, MatLab or similar programing languages) are welcome to apply for the participation at the NFDI-MatWerk Summer School 2023.

The Summer School will take place from 18th to 22nd September 2023 in the Graduate Center, Building C 9.3 at the Saarland University in Saarbrücken.

The scientific consortium NFDI-MatWerk (National Research Data Infrastructure) focuses on the research area Materials Science & Materials Engineering (MSE). The central challenge is the digital representation of materials and their relevant process and load parameters. NFDI-MatWerk will provide in this summer school tailored information and solutions for dealing with research data in MSE. The participation is free of charge.

Contents of the Summer School:

  • Introduction to FAIR principles
  • Fundamentals of scientific metadata: relationship between (digital) research data, metadata and knowledge, importance of metadata in today’s research, technologies and concepts related to structured machine-readable metadata
  • Introduction to programming language Python
  • Introduction to Electronic Lab Notebooks and demonstrations-workshop
  • Designing of a Research Data Management Plan for the own PhD
  • Best practice examples of application of FAIR principles in MSE

Further information about the programme and the experts will be provided soon.
