The DESIR Winter School “Shaping new approaches to data management in arts and humanities” was organised as part of the DESIR project, in December 2019, in Lisbon, Portugal.
DESIR (DARIAH ERIC Sustainability Refined) was a 3-year project that received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No 731081. Its aim was to strengthen the sustainability of DARIAH and firmly establish it as a long-term leader and partner within arts and humanities communities.
The DESIR Winter School was hosted by NOVA FCSH University facilities and was a joint organisation between DARIAH and NOVA FCSH, bringing together the collaboration of national and European experts in the data management field. The main objective was to introduce scientific and academic communities in the arts and humanities to the principles and practices of responsible research and Open Science.
With seven sessions and 6 speakers on data in the humanities, data and software citation practices, copyright and (open) licensing, data management plans, publishing practices and open research notebooks, the event was a great success featuring 20 participants from all over Europe (Croatia, Czech Republic, Italy, Ireland, Germany, Greece, Poland, Portugal, Romania and the United Kingdom).
