In all FAIRness: discussing the future of research data

On 15 November 2021 the Groningen Digital Competence Centre will officially launch! The GDCC is a partnership of the digital competence centres of the UG and the UMCG. Join the launch and dive into the future of research data with the Dutch Research Council (NWO), Young Academy Groningen (YAG) and a panel of UG and UMCG researchers. See the full programme below.

*Important information*

In light of the recent corona situation, the Groningen Digital Competence Centre launch will take place online. It's amazing to see how many of you want to join us for the launch, but with such a large group we felt an on-site event was simply not responsible anymore.

Instead, the launch will take place in Gather Town. This platform allows us to still have an interactive event. Not familiar with Gather Town? Just click the blue button below and snoop around our virtual conference room!
