We would like to ask your attention for the Research Data Alliance (RDA) virtual plenary session of April 6 7.30 - 9.00 am UTC on Professionalising Data Stewardship.
In the meeting, case studies on professionalising data stewardship will be presented and we will ask feedback on the proposal for the creation of the new RDA Professionalising Data Stewardship Interest Group (IG).
The idea to create an interest group was raised during the 14th Plenary (Helsinki) at the first plenary's BoF-session on professionalising data stewardship. In this virtual 15th Plenary follow-up BoF-session, the group will highlight case studies from the community and ask input for the challenges identified in P14, i.e. a business case for data stewardship, data stewardship terminology, the integration of data stewardship across an organisation, job profiles for data stewards, training for data stewards, career tracks for data stewards, and networking and knowledge exchange.
