The GODAN Action network will publish a new e-learning course on ‘Open Data and Research Data Management in Agriculture and Nutrition’, available between the 13th November and 8th December 2017.

The course is open to infomediaries, policy makers, administrators, project managers, researchers and scientists working in the areas of agriculture and nutrition.

This e-learning course is the result of a collaboration between GODAN Action partners, including Wageningen Environmental ResearchAgroKnowAidData, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the Global Forum on Agricultural Research (GFAR), the Institute of Development Studies (IDS), the Land Portal, the Open Data Institute (ODI) and the Technical Centre for Agriculture and Rural Cooperation (CTA).

This e-learning course aims to strengthen the capacity of data producers and data consumers to manage and use open data in agriculture and nutrition. One of the main learning objectives is for the course to be used widely within agricultural and nutrition knowledge networks, in different institutions. The course also aims to raise awareness of different types of data formats and uses, and to highlight how important it is for data to be reliable, accessible and transparent.
