Researchers at Charles Darwin University have benefited from a series of training events and discussions conducted by a national research data organisation.

The Australian National Data Service (ANDS) ran the events at Casuarina campus and held additional meetings with staff involved in CDU Library projects such as the Living Archive of Aboriginal Languages, the National Environmental Science Programme, and the National Environmental Research Program.

During his visit, ANDS Research Data Analyst Richard Ferrers said he was impressed by CDU’s newly established research data management (RDM) policies, systems and services and said these systems placed CDU at the forefront of RDM capability in Australia. 

CDU Library Digital Collections Coordinator Neil Godfrey said the next step would be to promote these services to researchers to bring more of CDU’s world-class research datasets to the wider community.
