The rise of the Data stewards at USN

Friday 29th of October (10:00-11:30 CET), the University of South-Eastern Norway will organise, in occasion of the Open Access week 2022, an event dedicated to research data and its FAIRly new superheroes: The Data Stewards.

A data steward is an expert who assists researchers, and others with research data responsibilities, in ensuring good data handling throughout all phases of the data life cycle.

In this session, experts will look at the Data Steward from different angles:

  • Live Håndlykken Kvale will give a short presentation of the project “Competence framework for research data support” (Kompetanserammeverk for forskningsdatastøtte), a project that aims to map what skills are needed to meet the needs of data stewards.
  • Nils Pharo will give his thoughts on a possible Data Steward study program at OsloMet’s Library and information studies.
  • Tereza Kalova, from the University of Vienna, will talk about engaging on USN data support program and overall Research data management strategy.
  • Korbinian Bösl from BioMedData will  present their experiences with/plans for data steward education and certification
  • Data managers from Utrecht University will give two presentations: one about their research data service and one about the YOUth project, that one of the data managers is working closely on.

Each presentation will last for about 10 minutes, and the session will be closed up with a plenary discussion about the Data Steward role.
