The main objective of the data management workshop is to start defining the data management strategy for the TL I project (aligned to the IBP project as well as translation into use by the TL II project eventually).

  1. Catalogue the data generated to date in the first phase of the TLI project and clearly identify information needs for phase II
  2. Review of existing systems and the adoption of ICIS at the crop lead centers for the legumes. What are the next steps?
  3. Conduct an ICIS training
  4. Discuss the way forward in designing and implementing data management strategy
