We are pleased to invite you to the Love Data Week 2023 edition on EPFL campus. The Love Data Week is an international event that aims to celebrate good practices in Research Data Management (RDM) among research communities.
This year, the EPFL Library thinks big with a two-week event open to all EPFL audiences, from students to researchers and staff. We offer you several activities: LEGO® and Zenodo workshops, talks with the EPFL Data Champions community, and to end on a high note: the very first EPFL Ideathon dedicated to data!
Don’t wait to register and see you on campus from February 14th to 23rd!


WORKSHOP | The LEGO® metadata game: another (reproducible) brick in the wall
Tuesday, Feb. 14 | 12:30-14:30 | CO 120
Can you reproduce a model with just documentation? Can you make your documentation clear enough to enable others to reproduce your model? Let’s play with LEGO® bricks and learn how to capture, record, and disseminate metadata, and how you can incorporate metadata into your own work.
This event is open to everyone.

DATA IDEATHON | Crazy data-driven ideas for the campus of tomorrow
Join the first Data Ideathon organized by EPFL Library. As we thrive to better support the management of your research data throughout the year, we now invite you to use data to push the boundaries of creativity.
What if you could access any type of data generated and collected at EPFL? Would you be able to craft sustainable solutions with this massive amount of data? The data you will use to shape your ideas may exist or not, may be accessible or not, and may be related to the theme of your choice: research, education, innovation, sustainability, climate, energy, transportation, food, recycling, housing, diversity, life on campus, etc.
Whether you are alone, a team, or with your lab fellows: come and play with your peers, show your talent, have fun and win awards!
