This three-hour workshop provides an overview of the practices involved in making data freely available (Open Data), as well as in reusing such data. It consists of a mix of lectures and exercises.

The workshop is suitable for both scientists and students at the Charité and BIH, as well as MDC. External participants are welcome, but this can be subject to availability (see below).

Learning goals

The workshop will answer the following questions:

  • What is open data and why is it important to share data?
  • How do I choose a suitable repository for archiving?
  • How do I ensure that my data are easy to find and accessible?
  • How do I ensure that my data are also re-usable in the long term?
  • How can I consider privacy aspects?
  • How do I search for useful data sets and how do I quote them?


No prerequisites.


For participation in this workshop you can receive a certificate. ECTS: 0,2


Dr. Evgeny Bobrov, Consultant for open data and research data management at the QUEST Center of the Berlin Institute of Health. He advises on the sharing of biomedical data, as well as research data management more broadly.
