Seventh LERU Doctoral Summer School
July 10-15, 2016 - Leiden University
The seventh annual "LERU Doctoral Summer School" is hosted by Leiden University. The theme of the summer school will be "Data Stewardship for Scientific Discovery and Innovation".
Given the current and ever increasing ability of experimental sciences to rapidly generate and virtually instantaneously share and link vast amounts of data from a variety of sources, proper data stewardship is swiftly becoming an essential responsibility of experimental and data scientists, if not all researchers (see also the LERU Roadmap for Research Data).
In taking this responsibility they face intellectual challenges that are too complex to be mastered by their individual expertise. Consequently, the scientists of the future should solve big data related challenges as respectfully collaborating specialists.
The LERU Summer School "Data Stewardship for Scientific Discovery and Innovation" will prepare its participants for the future of complex, multi-stakeholder and multi-disciplinary scientific methods and collaborations.
