How researchers manage their data has been thrown under the public spotlight by recent events at the University of East Anglia over climate data. This major one day conference for researchers and institutional managers will look at ways in which public confidence in science can be restored through good management of the research data lifecycle. High profile plenary speakers will set the scene and inspire with examples of data sharing, drawn from the environmental, social and bio- sciences, that have lead to new research and collaborations that would otherwise have been impossible. The event will also address the question: how open can science be?
