RDM and HPC - Challenge or Chance?

The consortium "AG-FDM" within the HPC.nrw-project organizes a regular online-seminar discussing research data management (RDM) strategies in the context of high-performance-computing (HPC). The series will cover specific RDM-solutions for the various scientific disciplines with topics generated through the interest of the participants.

We will continue our online seminar series with a talk on the RDM platform "Coscine" on the 9th of april 2024, 10 am. Participation is free of charge with no registration is required and access is provided via webex.

Interested participants may register to our mailing list.

The research data management (RDM) platform Coscine is developed and maintained at RWTH Aachen University. It allows to organize a structure of projects and sub-projects and to manage access rights on the (sub-)project level in terms of the FAIR-criteria. Coscine integrates the object storage system RDS (Research Data Storage) that is provided by a consortium of universities from NRW. Furthermore, other external systems can be integrated. All data, whether in RDS or in other connected systems can be annotated with structured metadata according to flexibly definable application profiles. Metadata is stored in a graph database in the RDF/OWL format, thus ensuring interoperability. All functionalities of Coscine are available via a web interface as well as via APIs, thus ensuring that they can be integrated in automated data streams. RWTH Aachen University guarantees to store the data for at least ten years after a project ends, as required by Good Research Practice.

The dates for upcoming seminars: Every second tuesday of the month, next session: 14.05.2024. Save the date!
