About the Event

The ARDC invites you to the launch of the Institutional Underpinnings Research Data Management (RDM) Framework. 25 Australian universities collaboratively developed this national institutional framework for RDM, informing the design of policy, procedures, infrastructure and services, as well as improving RDM coordination within and between Australian universities and research institutions.

The main launch event will be held in Canberra, and will include presentations from universities who participated in collaborative projects in the program, as well as an overview of the program’s future directions.

The event will be broadcast via Zoom to enable online participation. Local events will also be held in-person in Brisbane, Sydney, Toowoomba, Melbourne and Adelaide, where attendees can watch the launch presentation and hear from local participants in the program.
