Research Data Management course 

This online self-study course made by CSC – IT Center for Science provides the basics of research data management. We focus on researcher's perspective and aim to introduce the topics, tools and resources available at each phase. The purpose of data management is to ensure that the risks associated with research data are avoided and that the data is used ethically, securely and effectively both during and after the research project.

It is useful to have a basic understanding of research and research process, but otherwise this course does not have any prerequisites. It's time to learn the basics of research data management!
