    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Slides from WORKSHOP - Introduction to Humanities Research Data Management (Part 1 Theory, Ulrike Wuttke) held at Luxembourg Open Science Forum, 15.11.2018&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Reusable, machine-readable data are one pillar of Open Science (Open Scholarship). Serving this data&lt;br&gt;
reuse aspect requires from researchers to carefully document their methods and to take good care of&lt;br&gt;
their research data. Due to this paradigm shift, for Humanities and Heritage researchers, activities and&lt;br&gt;
issues around planning, organizing, storing, and sharing data and other research results and products&lt;br&gt;
play an increasing role. Therefore, during two workshop sessions Ulrike Wuttke and Jochen Klar will dive&lt;br&gt;
with the participants into a number of topics, technologies, and methods that are connected with&lt;br&gt;
Humanities Research Data Management. The participants will acquire knowledge and skills that will&lt;br&gt;
enable them to draft their own executable research data management plan that will support the&lt;br&gt;
production of reusable, machine-readable data, a key prerequisite for conducting effective and&lt;br&gt;
sustainable projects. Topics that will be covered are theoretical reflections on the role of data within&lt;br&gt;
humanities research and cultural heritage studies, opportunities and challenges of eHumanities and&lt;br&gt;
eResearch, implementing the FAIR principles and relevant standards, and basics of Data Management&lt;br&gt;

&lt;strong&gt;Learning outcomes&lt;/strong&gt;: Participants of this workshop will gain an overview about issues related to&lt;br&gt;
Humanities Research Data Management and learn about relevant tools and information resources.&lt;br&gt;
Through a hands-on session, the participants will be especially equipped and skilled to draft the nucleus&lt;br&gt;
of their own Research Data Management Plan.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;strong&gt;Structure of the workshop&lt;/strong&gt;: The workshop will consist of two sessions. In the morning session, the&lt;br&gt;
basics of Humanities Research Data Management will be discussed with the participants using examples&lt;br&gt;
from various humanities backgrounds and projects. The afternoon session will be dedicated to handson&lt;br&gt;
data management planning using the data management planning tool RDMO. This supervised&lt;br&gt;
practical exercise will offer the participants the opportunity to learn by doing. Participants are&lt;br&gt;
encouraged to discuss data management issues related to their own projects (or project ideas) ideas&lt;br&gt;
and to contact the trainers beforehand.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Audience&lt;/strong&gt;: The workshop sessions are aimed at Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage researchers&lt;br&gt;
and practitioners with who wish to learn how to enable good Research Data Management and the&lt;br&gt;
sharing and reuse of data from a humanities point of view. No special previous knowledge or&lt;br&gt;
programming skills are required.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;strong&gt;Ulrike Wuttke&lt;/strong&gt; (Doctor of Literature, Universiteit Gent 2012, is a medievalist and&lt;br&gt;
textual scholar by training. She contributes to projects and networks in digital preservation and digital&lt;br&gt;
arts and humanities via groups such as the Working Group Data Centres of the Verband Digital&lt;br&gt;
Humanities im deutschsprachigen Raum (deputy convenor). Her professional activities focus on training&lt;br&gt;
and personal counselling on data management, open science and Digital Humanities as well as public&lt;br&gt;
relations, communication and outreach. She joined the PARTHENOS project and FH Potsdam in April&lt;br&gt;
2017. She leads task 7.2 (Implementation of the Training plan) of the H2020 project PARTHENOS. She&lt;br&gt;
coordinates the further development of its online training platform, the PARTHENOS Training Suite, and&lt;br&gt;
the PARTHENOS eHumanities and eHeritage Webinar Series.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;strong&gt;Jochen Klar &lt;/strong&gt;(PhD in numerical cosmology, University of Potsdam 2012, works in the area of&lt;br&gt;
data management and eScience at the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam (AIP) and takes part in&lt;br&gt;
various data related projects, both in astrophysics as well as in interdisciplinary contexts. He was&lt;br&gt;
involved in the development of several astronomical data portals (e.g. RAVE, APPLAUSE, CosmoSim,&lt;br&gt;
GREGOR). For the DFG projects RADIESCHEN and DFG-VRE, he investigated the sustainability and the&lt;br&gt;
organizational structure of data management and virtual research environments in Germany. He is the&lt;br&gt;
main developer of the Daiquiri framework for the publication of astronomical databases and of the&lt;br&gt;
RDM-planning tool RDMO (Research Data Management Organiser).&lt;/p&gt;
