The research community needs advanced digital research skills to use and manipulate data to its full potential. To ensure researchers succeed, the ARDC Skilled Workforce Program has a broad ambition: seeking to bring partners, lead agencies, peak bodies and other stakeholders together to create and implement a National Digital Research Skills Agenda.

The Skilled Workforce Program partners with the people who train researchers at universities and institutions around Australia. Working together, we establish and nurture communities of practice. The objective is to lead discussion and active planning to develop a national skills agenda that focuses on coordination, collaboration, partnerships and sustainable outcomes.

In this talk we will outline the work the ARDC skills team have done to:
• Define the digital research skills landscape - the skills researchers need and why,
• Make materials, activities, and trainers more available to more researchers
• Work with skills and workforce community in strategically planning for and delivering a national skills advantage for researchers

This talk is for trainers, training program managers, researchers who train, organisation directors, policy makers, infrastructure managers and all those involved in digital infrastructure training programs at a local or national level and we look forward to attendees coming along prepared to contribute their expertise as the event is all about active participation.
