Skills and competencies related to data literacy and data management are indispensable in today’s data-intensive research environment, both in STEM as well as in the humanities and social sciences. In recent years, there has been a significant shift in scientific communication towards open science, and many new approaches, tools, and technologies have emerged, enabling a research process that goes beyond the traditional way of research. Open science has the potential to lead researchers to an open, collaborative, transparent, reproducible and, therefore, effective research process.

The University of Maribor Summer School offers PhD students and young researchers an opportunity to learn and develop skills in the fields of research data management, open access to research results, the use of open research infrastructure, supercomputing resources, and the European Open Science Cloud. With lectures and workshops led by domestic and international experts, the course will provide a deeper understanding of these topics and insight into valuable practical experience.

The preliminary programme can be found here.

BIP - The Erasmus+ programme introduces new Blended Intensive Programmes (BIP) as alternative mobility for students and staff. BIP combine short-term physical mobility with a virtual component and make Erasmus+ mobility more flexible. Students who participate in BIP can combine their study plans at their home institution and mobility at the same semester.

Students will receive support for physical mobility: 70 Euro per day. Students with fewer opportunities may receive travel support. Students who do not receive travel support can opt for green travel. In this case, they will receive a single contribution of 50 Euro as a top-up amount to the individual support and up to four days of additional individual support to cover travel days for a return trip, if relevant.

The International Office of the University of Siegen provides further information and support to students for physical mobility. Please contact Susanne Engelmann, susanne.engelmann@zv.uni-siegen.de.
