    all generating more digital stuff than ever before.
  9. Senior researchers think grad students and ECRs know how to

    manage data because they’re digital natives... But they don’t! And senior researchers aren’t equipped to train them, either. They don’t know where to start.

  15. boldness in RDM-land •  Embrace discomfort + an uncertain path

    •  Keep sharing openly about successes AND failures •  Approach RDM within a broader context •  Work on our elevator speeches •  Stop letting commercial entities take the lead (prevent vendor lock-in!)
  16. the future of data services •  Teams - local, national,

    and international •  DIL/teaching, particularly training graduate students •  Computational focus (high throughput, data carpentry) •  Tied to federal funding requirements •  Curation + preservation services
  17. an update on Research Data Services at UW

  18. Research Data Services

  19. 2015 - 2016 •  getting organized •  tracking + assessment
