Monthly Data Conversations

The VU Data Conversations are intended for VU Amsterdam researchers, students, support and management staff, data stewards and data specialists. The goal of these meetings is to create a space for knowledge sharing between different faculties and disciplines. The topics we discuss include research transparency, reproducibility, open methods and open data. The meetings start with a brief presentation, after which the floor is thrown open for discussion.

Thinking of giving a Data Conversation presentation yourself?

We are planning for the new Data Conversation meeting. If you would like to give a brief presentation on data management, open data, open methods or reproducible research, please fill out this form. We are keen to receive input from our community.
