French Data Management Clusters

The "FAIR Implementation Workshop - French Data Management Clusters" took place on 4 April 2024 10:00-12:00 CEST. 

At national level, the French Ministry of Research has developed a platform: Recherche Data Gouv (RDG). It has been designed to support research teams in their work of structuring data to make it easy to find, accessible, interoperable and reusable, in other words, in line with the "FAIR" principles. The workshop presented the French data management clusters that aim to be close to research teams so they can provide researchers with initial expertise in rational research data management.
