Join our workshop tailored to students and academics to learn how to use open data from data.europa.eu for your research.
On Thursday 19 October from 10.00 to 12.00 CET, data.europa.eu will host its first workshop series on ‘How to use open data for your research’. This series, designed for students and academics is also open to anyone interested. The goal is to showcase the relevance and importance of open data for academic purposes. During this workshop, you will learn how to use open data from our portal for research and get examples from universities that have already embraced open data in their daily operations.
The workshop will start with an introduction by the Publications Office of the EU on open data and data.europa.eu. Following that, a hands-on presentation will be given through the portal, demonstrating how to efficiently search for specific datasets. Furthermore, three esteemed universities - KU Leuven, University of Amsterdam, and University of Naples L'Orientale - will present practical examples of how open data can be used to conduct Research.
These universities offer three distinct perspectives on using open data in research. The KU Leuven Research Repository provides access to open research data through their database, providing valuable resources to students. The University of Amsterdam offers a practical example of how linked open data can drive research and the UniOR NLP Research Group of the University of Naples L'Orientale will showcase a real-life example of exploiting open data for applications.
Following the informative university presentations, a short practical assignment will be given to help put the learnings into practice. To wrap up the practical assignment, you will have the opportunity to share your insights and ask your questions during the Q&A session.
