The ever-increasing volume and variety of data being generated impacts academia and the private sector. Contemporary research and evidence-based decision making cannot be done effectively without a range of data-related skills, such as, but not limited to, the principles and practice of Open Science, research data management and curation, data platforms and infrastructures implementation, data...

Research data is acquired, interpreted, published, reused, and sometimes eventually discarded. Understanding this life cycle better will help the development of appropriate infrastructural services, ones which make it easier for researchers to preserve, share, and find data. Structural biology is a discipline within the life sciences, one that investigates the molecular basis of life by...

As more and more researchers are hitting the limits of traditional computing facilities, the interest into using public and private clouds keeps growing. However, many researchers are unwilling and unable to leave behind their existing infrastructure meaning science is in a transitional period. At the moment, many research groups across Europe are struggling with the same basic questions when...

Research practices are getting a radical makeover, in part thanks to the power of the internet and the tools it provides, and in part due to a growing demand for accountability in research (e.g., reproducibility and data provenance). In order to achieve this, global policies are emerging at different levels that include some aspect of ‘Open Research’, ‘Open Scholarship’, ‘Open Education’ or...
