STEM guest lecture series: research data governance


Data is the lifeblood of modern research. From the Nobel Prize winning research of Professor Brian Schmidt on the expansion of the universe, to the life-saving work testing the effectiveness of vaccines during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The availability and access to high quality research data is absolutely critical to the success and validity of research. Managing research data safely, responsibly, and ethically should be key to all good research practices.

In this masterclass, we will consider research data governance frameworks that provide the foundation for responsible research practice.


This session is hosted by The Australian National University (ANU) College of Engineering and Computer Science as part of the 2021 STEM guest lecture series, where you can take part in a series of masterclasses delivered by leading ANU academic experts and researchers.

Participants will be expected to have some level of background knowledge in the subject area of each lecture.

We look forward to seeing you there!
