Building the Next Generation of Data Savvy Biomedical Researchers




Data Literacy, Training, Life Sciences, Health Informatics, Promoting RDM


Modern research data management in biomedicine requires data literacy skills. The NFDI4Health consortium, the national research data infrastructure for personal health data, addresses this need with several different training concepts for clinical and epidemiological scientists. Both the institutional anchorage of the training and the thematic focus vary and can be assembled from a modular system as required. The aim is to enable multipliers to adapt and use the training modules through open educational resources. In addition, a competency profile for data stewards is under development to support the choice of required training in research institutions. The results will be fed into the NFDI “Education & Training” Section and will contribute to the Data Literacy Alliance in the future.
