About the workshop

The eLabBook activity is a collaborative project in the frame of the National Data Management forum (DM- forum). In this project, research groups from KU, AU and DTU have tested (and implemented) different Electronic Lab Notebook (ELNs) software in order to evaluate how these systems can adapt to their research workflows and facilitate data documentation and sharing of data.  

At this workshop you will learn about the knowledge and experienced gained by each research group on how to choose an ELN that satisfy their needs, the pros and cons of the investigated systems and how to best implement an ELN into their workflows.

You will also have the opportunity to listen the talks of two experts, one from academia talking about research integrity and the importance of data documentation, and one expert from industry (Chr. Hansen) talking about research documentation in a company and its future challenges.

The workshop is open to all researchers, students and research support staff who are interested to learn more about research data documentation and practical experience of researchers with ELNs. The workshop is free of charge, but the number of participants is limited to 85 persons.
