Polar Access Fund – Data management in the field

20th November 2020

Every year, SPI organises events targeting the needs of the early-career grantees of the funding instrument Polar Access Fund. This year, the grantees will join us Friday 20 November 2020, online, for an afternoon dedicated to the data management in the field. All stages of data management will be covered, from preparation for fieldwork to management upon return.
