Data Conversations


25 April 2018 – GDPR and your research data

To read about this event :


What are Data Conversations?

Research data is a crucial pillar of the research process. Data Conversations are all about bringing researchers together to share their data stories, discuss issues and exchange ideas. Whether it is about data creation, collection, use, processing, sharing or management; whether it is about lessons learned from your own failures (#DataHorrorStories) or successes in dealing with data; Data Conversations aims to make the exchange happen.

The usual format will be a 2 hours session with lightning talks and open discussion/debate time.

Who should attend?

Researchers and research support staff from any research institution in Luxembourg and any discipline; from early career to established and leading researchers.

Can I present my data story?

Yes! Data Conversations is all about researchers sharing their data stories with other researchers. We are currently looking for speakers for the next event themed over the GDPR. Feel free to contact if you would be interested in presenting (10 minutes lightning talks).


Data Conversations are a series of events jointly organised by the OpenAIRE infrastructure and the University of Luxembourg Library.

OpenAIRE is a pan-European project funded by the European Commission which has for mission to support and implement Open Science practices and infrastructures throughtout Europe. The National Open Acces Desk (NOAD) representative is there to help with any questions and queries around research publications, Open Access, data management, etc.

Other Data Conversations in the world

The concept of Data Conversations originates from Lancaster University Library (UK) which will held its fifth edition in April 2018. Be sure to check their blogposts about their previous Data Conversations events.
