Data Stewardship goes Germany



The Interest Group RDM of the TU9 Alliance, Association of German Universities of Technology, invites data stewards, research data officers, research data handling officers, data experts, data curators and data managers, as well as anyone interested in research data management (RDM), to a two-day workshop on RDM in science and engineering. There will be a special focus on the concept of data stewardship.

The workshop will be held 25–26 September 2023 at the Open Science Lab of the Saxon State and University Library Dresden (SLUB).

There is an increasing understanding that RDM is neither trivial, nor can it be expected to be a core competence of scientific personnel in research institutes. Through the implementation of data stewards into their existing team structures, more and more research facilities and projects have started to appreciate the impact of sensitising researchers to sustainable RDM practices on the quality of their scientific output.

This workshop provides the opportunity to network and critically analyse problems within the RDM community. It fosters the exchange of knowledge in the developing field of data stewardship through the presentation of innovative solutions and comprehensive evaluations.

The workshop is held in English.

Participation in the workshop is free of charge. On the first night of the workshop, we would like to invite you to join a shared dinner on a self-pay basis.
