Call for Characterisation Community Champions

The Characterisation Virtual Laboratory (CVL) Champions are a community of researchers, university lecturers, and bioimaging professionals taking part in a skills development program. The program is to enhance the national characterisation computing infrastructure and apply FAIR FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) data principles to research workflows, by upskilling scientists and bioimaging professionals for continuation of these goals.

The CVL Champions Program’s aim is to create a community that stimulates network engagement across Australian characterisation facilities to raise the awareness of FAIR data principles and access to the national characterisation computing infrastructure.

The CVL Champions is part of the Characterisation Data enhanced Virtual Laboratory (CDeVL) project, funded by the Australian Research Data Commons (ARDC).

Why be a CVL champion?

  • Becoming a CVL champion provides access to networking, advanced skills development, and demonstrates service to the profession.

  • The program provides the Champions with all the ready-to-use materials and knowledge required so that they can confidently re-deliver similar workshops from the Program in their own institutions.

  • The CVL champions are a community exemplar working together remotely and in person during two months (September/October 2019), so the time commitment is balanced.

  • Community members who are already involved in training can, and are encouraged to take part in the Program to improve their current teaching methodology and to further extend their network.

  • The program offers a two day in person meeting, with all costs paid.
