"Good data habits from the moment you start planning your research"
Data created from research are valuable resources that can be used and reused for future scientific and educational purposes.
Good data management practices are essential in research, to make sure that research data are of high quality, are well organised, documented, preserved and accessible and their validity controlled at all times. This results in efficient and excelling research. Well managed data are easily shared and can thus be used for new research or to duplicate and validate existing research.
Data management needs to be planned early on in research, so that practices can be implemented throughout the research cycle.
