A sub-working group of the LCRDM has done the groundwork for the revision of the VSNU Code of Conduct Use of Personal Data (to be published in 2020).

Escape room: proper RDM is the only way out


Escape room: proper RDM is the only way out!

Are you a research supporter helping researchers with their data? Are you in need of a fun and digital way to teach your researchers more about research data management? 

In 2020 the VU Amsterdam, Leiden University, and the Eindhoven University of Technology created an online data horror escape room; a game where a team of players has to solve a set of puzzles to “escape” the room in which they are “locked”.  The room they created consists of six tasks related to: FAIR data, personal data, data archiving, data transfer, persistent identifiers, and metadata. For more details, see this blog post.

They are happy to share their experience and the game itself with the RDM colleagues world-wide. Feel free to try out their escape room and don't hesitate to contact them if you have any questions!
