She leads the NGDC grants team, advising grant holders on all aspects of research data management lifecycle from the start of the research project to the archiving and reuse of research data. Jaana specializes in digital preservation of geoscience data at the NGDC where she is developing a preservation programme to enhance the long-term availability and reusability of the research data held at the data centre. She is also a member of the British Geological Survey (BGS) Information Governance Group, delivers an annual RDM training course for NERC funded geoscience PhD students and is the current Vice-Chair of the UK Information and Records Management Society (IRMS).

This event is part of the 'data management and analytical tools for environmental science' webinar series

The NERC Constructing a Digital Environment programme runs an active webinar activity. Held every three weeks, these aim to develop the digitally enabled environment to benefit scientists, policymakers, businesses, communities and individuals. The webinars are arranged into ‘series’, drawing together presentations following similar themes. 

The fourth webinar series, led by the NERC Environmental Data Service (NERC EDS) focusses on research data management and the analytical tools available to support researchers in the environmental sciences. This series showcases the services provided by the EDS and illustrates how it supports the open data agenda. The series will describe how tools developed by the EDS enable interoperability, support large-scale data analysis and facilitate multi- and trans-disciplinary research.
