Thematic DCCs formed

This week the formation of three thematic Digital Competence Centres (TDCCs) has started. For Life Sciences & Health, Natural and Engineering Sciences and Social Sciences and Humanities these TDCCs will tackle domain specific challenges which transcend across the boundaries of individual institutions. As local DCC, NWO-I DCC was involved in the plans leading up to the formation of the TDCCs and continues to be involved.

NWO-I is member of The Carpentries

NWO-I has become member of The Carpentries, a worldwide community driven initiative to teach foundational coding and data science skills to researchers. The focus lies on open and reproducible science, covering skills such as reproducible coding and data management. Workshops are hands-on with lesson material developed and maintained by members of the scientific community. Are you interested? Check the curriculum here. Shortly we will start advertising the workshops we organise at the   NWO institutes on the course page.
