Dear colleagues,
We are writing in order to invite you to take part in the Research Data Management Readiness survey http://learn-rdm.eu/survey-rdm-readiness/, that has been compiled as part of the LEARN (LEaders Activating Research Networks) Project (<http://learn-rdm.eu/survey-rdm-readiness/>http://learn-rdm.eu) funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
The survey is addressed to research institutions such as yours that are currently facing the challenges of research data management (RDM) whether or not you have developed a strategy and/or policy. The survey reviews the existence of a policy as well as the establishment of services to help researchers in the management of their data. It also questions the existence of infrastructures and models of cost at your institution. Moreover, the survey remarks on the need for the creation of new roles and the organization of training sessions in order to build awareness and to steward researchers with their data. As a result, the hope is that it will allow you to assess the level of readiness your institution towards research data management, diagnose your current situation and be able to identify gaps and areas for further action.
The survey has just thirteen multiple choice questions and should take less than 5 minutes to complete. The answers gathered by the online survey will be collected by the LEARN Project partners and will be analysed in order to get a down-to-earth picture of the current situation at different research institutions particularly across Europe, Latin America but also beyond. The outcomes will influence the development of the RDM toolkit, one of the main goals of the LEARN project<http://learn-rdm.eu>.
The survey will be available on line throughout the lifetime of the LEARN Project so that it can be taken as many times as wished, and thereby it will allow you and us to analyse the evolution of RDM practice across institutions over time. We guarantee that your privacy is protected, as no personal information is required. Survey data will be released anonymously on our website under an open content license encouraging anyone to reuse it.
We encourage you to take the survey <https://docs.google.com/a/bib.uc3m.es/forms/d/18ZerrBWxzhhQv83Ar1iihgne6ooQjKtFejirNuHlrK4/viewform?c=0&w=1> and thank you in advance for your time and contribution. Any further questions can be addressed to info at learn-rdm.eu<mailto:info at learn-rdm.eu>.
Please feel free to share this invitation with colleagues as widely as possible as we are keen to get a high level of responses.
