This deliverable describes the training developments in NFDI4Health measure 'Training and Education'.

Target groups are doctoral students, early career researchers, and professionals in the health domain.

There are three main themes to the handbook:

  1. The description of  the cross-domain graduate training programme Data Train of the UBremen Research Alliance, in which NFDI4Health is a partner. This programme provides both a broad introduction to research data management and data science, and a practical, in-depth part on either data stewardship or data science
  2. A collection and discussion of RDM competencies related to health data. This collection is intended to be an addition to Version 2 of the "Learning objective matrix on the topic of research data management (RDM) for the target groups of students, PhDs and data stewards", a cooperation between DINI/nestor working group on training/education in research data and NFDI4Health
  3. NFDI4Health training courses covering RDM aspects

Training materials are openly available online and referenced via DOIs in the manual.

This document should be seen as the first version of a growing resource ( living document ).


NFDI4Health has received funding from the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) under Grant Agreement no. 442326535. Data Train is supported by the U Bremen Research Alliance and the Federal State of Bremen.
