"Open science is the idea that scientific knowledge of all kinds should be openly shared as early as is practical in the discovery process." Michael Nielsen

Data forms the bedrock of science and digitisation plus the move towards open science practises has made more data openly available online for discovery and reuse than ever before. This workshop will explore practical data skills for scientists from how to make use of current data wrangling tools to the most useful ways to publish your own data. Expect to get hands on and engage in discussion surrounding the future of e-Science in a world of open data. We are grateful to colleagues in the Open Knowledge Foundation for assistance with this event.
