UK ConTech 2018 awards three student places - 26 Nov 2018

Three student bursary places have been awarded to attend the inaugural ConTech which opens in just a weeks' time. There was an extremely high level of interest and making a final decision was exceptionally tough for the organisers. Two places were originally on offer but due to the high level and quality of the applicants the decision was made to expand the offer to three places.

Attending are two post graduate MSc Data Science students, one from China and one from Chile, and a working Librarian who is currently studying for a BA in Library and Information management.

ConTech 2018 takes place at Chelsea Harbour Hotel, London from November 29 – 30, 2018.

German Springer partners with Labster to bring students in Germany cutting-edge science education materials - 26 Nov 2018

Springer, a global scientific, technical and medical portfolio, has announced a partnership with Labster, connecting traditional textbook material with computer-animated simulations. This collaboration will help to shape the future of science education by changing the way students learn science. The enhanced textbook material is available via Springer's content platform SpringerLink or through purchasing a specific textbook.

With a shared vision to improve science education globally, Springer and Labster have created four concise English-language books for biology in higher education. This textbook format will provide new and improved learning material on the most relevant topics to help students prepare for their exams. The books are designed specifically for the German university curriculum.

Each book chapter covers the basic concepts of a topic, and is followed by a Labster simulation that students can use to reinforce and test their knowledge. Readers will also able to practise the techniques that they have learned with a hands-on lab experience which is simulated through virtual labs using advanced equipment and includes multiple choice questions and 3D animations.

This collaboration will begin with the launch of the first two Labster-authored books which cover theory in basic genetics and basic biology. In spring 2019, two more textbooks will follow covering theory in basic biochemistry and genetics of human diseases.

UK The Evaluating RDM Tool – a new tool for evaluating your RDM offering - 26 Nov 2018

Institutions now have a new means at their disposal to aid them in assessing their research data management initiatives, the Evaluating RDM Tool. A collaborative creation, the tool was developed using the SPARC Europe How Open is Your Research service and the Digital Curation Centre's RISE Framework.

According to SPARC Europe Director, Vanessa Proudman, this tool will help with the next phase, aiding institutions as they continue to improve and evolve their RDM programmes and practices.

Users are invited to answer a selection of questions. Based on their responses, three downloadable radar charts are generated providing insights into: the breadth or range of RDM services provided by the institution; the degree to which RDM services are being tailored to specific users; and lastly, whether or not the initiatives are "sector leading".

The tool is free to use. Any question regarding its use may be directed to info@sparceurope.org.
