Virtual panel discussion – How can data management initiatives facilitate environmental sustainability in the tropics? 17 March 2021, 14:30 (CET)


 The management of research data, in particular of international collaborative projects is always a challenge. Technical infrastructures, scientific ethics, administrative challenges, and undefined data ownerships can hinder initiatives for joint data usages. This can be even more challenging if only limited budgets are available for data management. Like other institutes, the ZMT, which strongly relies on long-lasting and trustful partnerships faces the challenges to develop joint data strategies. In the course of the newly established workgroup, the digital ZMT initiative DigiZ will have its mission to offer user-friendly and safe data infrastructures and to formulate basic guidelines for international collaborative data projects.

 With four international experts, we want to discuss critical issues of data management in the Global South and identify the potential of data initiatives as a backbone for marine resource management and conservation.
