Be inspired by three researchers as they share their data challenges and how they master them. Learn from their best practices and share your experience with your colleagues during drinks. 

As a researcher or research supporter, you deal with research data on a daily basis. Data management is, with an explosion of the amount of data, regulations and collaboration partners, set against a climate that's more challenging than ever. Together we are responsible for carefully and safely collecting, using and sharing research data.

Collecting and managing sensitive data on young people and sexuality - dr. Samira van Bohemen

While ethic data collection is a high priority, not many stories are shared amongst academics about the safe and responsible management of those data once gathered. Samira van Bohemen aims to break the silence and share some best practices related to a study about young people and good sex.   


How to do research in Big consortia - prof.dr. Antoinette de Bont

In her presentation Antoinette de Bont will sketch the rise of big research consortia in health sciences. Based upon the experiences of Erasmus School of Health Policy & Management (ESHPM) with H2020 projects she will describe the pro’s and cons of doing research in European Consortia. In addition, she will share the lessons ESHPM learned to do research on Big consortia.


Transparent and reproducible data science in R - dr. Loek Brinkman

State-of-the-art analyses and statistics, awesome data visualisations, transparent and reproducible workflows, open source software. This and more can be yours by using R for your data analyses. Loek Brinkman will give you a glossary and a practical introduction to R.
