To foster acceptance for the RDC model and data sharing in general, it is essential that RDCs provide trustworthy, reliable, and high-quality services. To take on these diverse and complex tasks, RDCs rely on highly-skilled scientific and non-scientific staff with the capacity to continuously incorporate novel technological and methodological developments into their work.
The German Data Forum’s working group will examine the skill requirements for RDC personnel, existing staff development strategies, and human resource needs of the RDCs. Additionally, the working group will examine the competence requirements for RDC users. Building on the results of this analysis, the working group will develop recommendations on cross-RDC activities in skills development.
