About the Fellowship

The ELIXIR-UK Fellowship aims to embed Research Data Management (RDM) know-how into UK universities and institutes. Fellows create training materials, contribute to ELIXIR resources and deliver training locally. We look to support Fellows’ activities and efforts to build a community of practice within their host institutions.

The 6 main goals

1. Creating bites of content

Fellows produce around 5-10 short videos (3-5 minutes each) on aspects of RDM within their fields of expertise. These videos focus on relaying basic concepts or signposting larger pieces of work for a research audience.

2. Developing training courses

Developing content for face-to-face and online courses. Working solo or in collaboration with other Fellows, trainers and ELIXIR members.

3. Delivering training locally.

Organising training within their institutions or communities using material developed in the Fellowship or within ELIXIR.

4. Seeding local communities of practice

Delivering training courses locally and disseminating training materials helps get interested parties together. The activities of the Fellowship aim to help build the grassroots of a local community of practice.

5. Enhancing training skills and competencies

Fellows benefit from ELIXIR training courses, including Train-the-Trainer, and develop coaching relationships with other Fellows and trainers.

6. Contributing to international projects

Fellows contribute to RDM best practice and know-how in international resources: FAIR Cookbook, RDMkit
