Themes of the 5 workshops:

These workshops will be held in French.

Workshop 1

>> Writing a Data Management Plan (DMP): feedback, good practices, tools and support services to guide research teams

Moderators: Romain FERET (Université de Lille), Yvette LAFOSSE (CNRS), Kenneth MAUSSANG (Université de Montpellier) et Véronique STOLL (Observatoire de Paris)


In its generic call for projects 2019, the ANR introduced the obligation (for any funded research project) to produce a data management plan (DMP) as a 6-month deliverable, which is to be updated regularly during the project. As a result, the DMP is becoming an essential project management tool for research teams, even for those in communities with less experience in this field. This important change in the daily practices of researchers calls for support in the drafting of DMPs, with potentially particular attention to be paid to the disciplinary fields where good data management practices have not reached maturity.
The objective of this workshop is to propose a perpective as part of an institutional policicies and supportive services interactive perspective and also in approach of the resarcher as a user with a detailed presentation of the generic DMP template provided by the ANR (available in DMP OPIDoR), which describes the good practices to be implemented at the beginning and throughout a project.
We will introduce national resources such as DoRANum and DMP OPIDoR as some of  the supporting tools available. Some other institutional initiatives will also be presented (University of Lille, Observatoire de Paris)..


Workshop 2

>> Making data repositories FAIR

Moderators: Pascal AVENTURIER (IRD), Pascal BONNET (CIRAD); Jean-Christophe DESCONNETS (IRD), Dimitri SZABO (Inra); Geneviève MICHAUD (Science Po)


This workshop will provide an overview of FAIR principles and the stakes involved in the construction of repositories delivering FAIR compliant data. In a second phase, it will focus on discussions on how to conduct and improve the "FAIRisation" of data to be stored in such repositories. These exchanges will be supplemented by presentations of ongoing work in the construction of institutional or disciplinary repositories.


Workshop 3

>> How to build a community around data? What about yours?

Moderator: Françoise GENOVA (CNRS, RDA)


The workshop will include a short presentation of how the international community working on scientific data is structured in the Research Data Alliance (RDA -, and will focus on a discussion with participants on how their community is or could be structured.


Workshop 4

>> Legal aspects of data management and sharing

Moderators: Romain BOISTEL (ENPC), Frédérique BORDIGNON (ENPC), Lionel MAUREL (CNRS)


The workshop will address legal issues related to the management and sharing of research data (intellectual property, reuse of public data, protection of personal data, etc.).
It will present the rights, duties and obligations of the researcher in this field and will also address tangible implementation aspects together with the potential licences that can be used and their application when data are deposited in a repository.


Workshop 5

>> Software and Open Science: Challenges and Opportunities

Moderators:  Mélanie CLEMENT-FONTAINE (UVSQ Paris Saclay) ; Roberto DI COSMO (On leave at Inria), Patrick MOREAU (CNRS) ; François PELLEGRINI (Université de Bordeaux)


Software plays multiple roles in research: it is a driver (as a tool), an output (as proof of  an existing solution) and an object of study (as an artifact).
The application of Open Science principles to software raises multiple issues:  

  • Description is intended to facilitate softwareidentification;
  • Access to research software source codes, their preservation and accurate identification is necessary to understand and reproduce published results, and to reuse and adapt them;
  • The citation of software used in research should give credit to authors, who may be multiple contributors with different roles;
  • A specific policy is necessary to ensure the long-term development of research software;
  • The public availability of these software products among industrialists aims to strengthen their capacity for innovation and contribution.

The purpose of this workshop is to take stock of the existing situation for each of those issues, to share initial considerations resulting from the work of the SPSO "free software" project group, and to outline an action programme.
