Join us for the Data Snacks, a culinary data break where we share our love for cooking research data in engaging and informative sessions. Each snack will address different challenges in data handling and offer practical solutions. At the end of each session, you'll receive the slides, complete with valuable content, tips, and helpful links for future use. Embark on this journey with us and empower your data skills! The full menu is available on the right and HERE.


Discuss Data is a community-centred repository for archiving, sharing and discussing research data on Eastern Europe, the South Caucasus and Central Asia. It goes beyond ordinary repositories as it combines research data management functions with a discussion platform for the community-driven quality assessment of research data. Questions of data quality gained especially importance in the context of the Russian Aggression against Ukraine, as there is an increasing debate within the area studies focussing on that region about reliability, validity, transparency and other aspects and challenges related to research data quality.

The “Data Snack” will be used to present the main idea and core functionalities of Discuss Data. Also, the concept of “Discuss Data Community Spaces”, which are currently under development, will be explained. In the near future, “Community Spaces” will offer the possibility for other scholarly communities to benefit from the core idea behind Discuss Data: Bridging research data management and professional discussion on all data-related issues in one place.


Dr. Eduard Klein is a research associate at the Research Centre for East European Studies at the University of Bremen . He is responsible for outreach, community engagement and communication at Discuss Data . Besides, he is the editor of the Ukraine-Analysen and theUkrainian Analytical Digest .


The info event will take place from 1:00 to 1:30pm via Zoom. There will be a 15-20 minute presentation followed by an open forum for questions and discussion. We look forward to exciting discussions!
