Implementing Research Data Management for Labs & Grants

Wednesday, April 28, 2021

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM PDT

This event will be held remotely.

Contemporary research is heavily data centered and includes multiple stakeholders and collaborators. Research data management is an important yet overlooked component by labs and smaller projects. Ad-hoc solutions are often developed to overcome pressing needs which end up becoming a norm, but they tend to have severe limitations and burdensome to use overtime. Research sponsors are now mandating strong data management during research phase and incorporation of FAIR Data principles for data products. However, research groups often do not have the resources and/or expertise to set up a well-managed data management system.

This webinar will introduce SeedMeLab a scientific data management system (supported by NSF), that is built for small to medium scale data that bridges the data management gaps for research labs/projects by providing:

  • Web accessible central storage with customizable metadata fields
  • Annotation and comments on any data item
  • Customizable access controls
  • Branding/Domain + an optional website
  • Scripting and automation capabilities
  • Managed service

The webinar with conclude with discussion on support for development of data management plan for grants and its implementation to meet Sponsor mandates.
