Developing a strategy for computational lab skills training through Software and Data Carpentry

Quality training in computational skills for life scientists is essential to allow them to deliver robust, reproducible, and cutting-edge research. ELIXIR has adopted a well-established and progressive programme of computational lab and data skills training from Software and Data Carpentry, aimed at increasing the number of skilled life scientists and building a sustainable training community in this field. Recently, Aleksandra Pawlik (New Zealand eScience Infrastructure), Celia van Gelder (ELIXIR-NL), Aleksandra Nenadic (ELIXIR-UK), and colleagues published an F1000 paper describing the Pilot action, which introduced the Carpentry training model to the ELIXIR community.  Read the full paper.
