Training and education

DLN promotes recruitment, education and training of talented young researchers in line with the digital life mission to gain better transdisciplinary cooperation and more innovation. 

The DLN Research School has an important role in creating an environment for excellent PhD training and support further career development at the post doc level. DLN also arranges workshops aimed at researchers beyond PhD/post doc level. These focus mainly on data and knowledge management to support open science and the development of methods for research and innovation in digital biotechnology.

In 2020 the centre has expanded the academic training with the Digital life industry internships initiative. Read more about the internships.

Data management

The Centre for Digital Life Norway has an ongoing collaboration with ELIXIR Norway and  FAIRDOM to provide solutions for improved data management in the centre. This includes the use of the Norwegian e-Infrastructure for Life Sciences (NeLS) and the SEEK data management platforms. This work is conducted in close dialogue with the research projects in the centre. This platforms provide access to long-term storage of scientific data, simplifies good practices for documenting metadata, as well as easier sharing and publishing of data and models. This solutions facilitate the FAIRification (Findable Accessible Interoperable Reusable) principles of scientific results. 

For address individual needs in the research projects, we provide funds for data management and arrange workshops and meetings for training in the use of this tools.
