    Hybrid Workshop: Future Opportunities for Software in Research

    May 12-13, 2022 I Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology I Plön

    May 12-13, 2022 I Virtual


    Software literacy has become a key competence for scientists across all disciplines. Scientists use software every day, and software development is becoming an increasingly important component of scientific productivity. However, the software needed for certain research projects can get highly complex and take up resources otherwise needed for core research. In the demanded professionalization of software development in research, specialized Research Software Engineers have emerged in recent years. With their help, researchers tackle the challenges in the areas of software and data, such as reproducibility, correctness, user-friendliness, performance, or maintenance.

    We would like to cordially invite all interested scientists, research software engineers, IT and computing specialists, and individuals involved in creating, using, or otherwise dealing with research software in the Max Planck Society. We also welcome participants from other research institutions.

    The workshop will be held in hybrid form, so you will be able to connect remotely or come to the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology in Plön.

    You can find more info about the event here.

    RDMO for MPG: Virtual Workshop!

    January 18, 2022 I 05:00 PM | Virtual

    January 26, 2022 I 09:00 AM | Virtual

    February 03, 2022 I 01:00 PM | Virtual

    February 11, 2022 I 11:00 AM | Virtual


    The service “RDMO for MPG” supports the organization of data management and the writing of data management plans for various funding organizations. Via this platform, DMPs can be written both more quickly and with other scientists involved in the project. At the same time, the plans can be updated throughout the various project phases and possibly forwarded to funding organizations.

    To facilitate the introduction of this new service, the RDM Support of the MPDL offers virtual tutorials via Zoom in January and February 2022. Join us!

    Workshop: Digital Publications in the Humanities

    November 2, 2021 I 09:00 am - 01:00 pm | Virtual Meeting

    humanisties 02

    Digital means and open-access policies are changing the landscape of scientific publishing in the humanities and social sciences, too. The workshop wants to explore both major challenges and concrete solutions in a highly dynamic interdisciplinary field of scientific practice. It aims at sharing past experiences and visions for future developments. Speakers and participants (especially from the GSHS) from different sectors such as digital humanities, publication management, research data management, libraries, public relations are invited to share their knowledge. At the same time, we will discuss perspectives for further development and possibilities for cooperation within the MPG.

    The workshop will focus on exchange. So we would like to ask you what issues in digital publishing are currently on your mind? And what would you or your colleagues like to talk about and share? Such urgent topics of conversation would help us to organize the appropriate talks.

    You can find more info on the FDM Workshop website.

    The registration for the workshop is now available.

    4. FDM-Workshop „Kompetenz Forschungsdatenmanagement in der MPG“

    5. und 6. Mai 2021 I online

    RDM Service Image MPDL Homepage Banner 2020 12 04

    Forschungsdatenmanagement erlebt seit einigen Jahren eine große Beachtung. Beispiele hierfür sind die Entwicklung der Nationalen Forschungsdateninfrastruktur (NFDI), der baldige Start der European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) und die zunehmende Relevanz von FDM-Aspekten bei Drittmittelanträgen. Diese komplexen Entwicklungen im Forschungsdatenmanagement betreffen auch die Max-Planck-Gesellschaft. Neben den technischen Voraussetzungen ist eine kontinuierliche Kompetenzentwicklung aller Beteiligten ein wesentlicher Aspekt für das Bestehen im wissenschaftlichen Wettbewerb. Diesen Aspekt werden wir eine besondere Aufmerksamkeit widmen.

    Weitere Information sind auf der Workshop-Website.

    Virtual Workshop: "Human Research Data in Practice"

    April 20, 2021 I 09:00 am - 12:00 pm | Virtual Meeting

    In addition to the annual FDM Workshop, the MPDL will host a digital workshop on Human Research Data in Practice.
    The workshop aims to address MPG colleagues on all fronts of data collection, analysis, and evaluation in human sciences. We would like to exchange views on the existing problems and the possible solutions that may already have been found. These are problems in everyday practice, IT solutions, or dealing with research data that are generated on, with, or by people.

    The program will be continuously updated on the FDM Workshop website.
    The registration for the workshop is now available.
