Online Masterclass: Introduction to machine learning in cancer genomics, module 1: Research Data Management

Join us for the first module of the digital version of this masterclass.

Material for self study is now available! Visit this page and scroll down to “RDM Toolkit”.

Research Data Management (RDM) is of vital importance in handling and organizing research data for the whole lifecycle of any research project, from planning to conclusion and beyond: it helps to run research activities efficiently and is at the base of any long-lasting collaboration. In addition, being able to draft a good RDM Plan is essential to all applications for funding.

We are pleased to let you know that we are organizing this Masterclass in a digital format.


  • Monday, June 29, 9:30 am:
    1-hour live video introduction to meet the expert and each other. Explanation on the structure of the program.
  • From Monday 29 to Thursday 2 July:
