Hello everyone,

We hope this email finds you well! 

We are writing to invite you to yet another "Ask me Anything" meeting, this time dedicated to Data Management and Data Planning !


Our speakers Christine Staiger and Karsten Kryger Hansen will talk about the basics of a Data Management lifecycle emphasising on the contents of a Data Management Plan (DMP). They will also highlight the use of various data infrastructures and services for DMPs. Christine’s talk introduce data stewardship and give a characterisation of data stewards as a new profession in the context of FAIR data. Karsten's talk will address perspectives of why continuous focus on research data management is important, what a data management plan can do – and cannot.


If you are interested in attending please note that registration is required

Short bio

Christine Staiger received her diploma in Bioinformatics from the University of Halle (Germany). After a short stay at the University of Leeds where she modeled bacterial behaviour by means of ordinary differential equations, she joined the Centre for Mathematics and Informatics (CWI) and the Dutch Cancer Institute (NKI) in Amsterdam where she developed algorithms for cancer patient classification. Before joining DTL as data steward, she worked as a consultant for SURFsara, the Dutch centre for HPC and data infrastructure where she took part in several European Projects. There she developed the blueprint for new services and implemented their prototypes. Next to her role as technical lead she also developed a rich training portfolio and delivered training in the field of data management for SURFsara and the Dutch alliance RDNL, and the EU projects EUDAT and ELIXIR.  In January 2019 she joined the Dutch Techcentre for lifesciences as coordinator data stewardship where she continued contributing to European data infrastructure projects and helps to build the Dutch community of data stewards.



Karsten Kryger Hansen is research data management coordinator at Aalborg University, and works with RDM in a broad perspective, covering many aspects of the life cycle of research data. Daily activities ranges from institutional perspectives on data management with the focus of being a change agent, to everyday support for specific use cases.


Looking forward to talking with you!
