It is our great pleasure to end Open Access Week 2022 with a session dedicated to research data and its FAIRly new superheroes: the data stewards and their role as experts in data handling throughout all phases of the data life cycle.

In this session we will look at the data steward from a few 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 us his thoughts on a possible data steward study program at the OsloMET library and information studies
  • Tereza Kalova from the University of Vienna will talk about engaging on their data support program and overall research data management strategy
  • Korbinian Bösl from BioMedData will present their experiences with and their plans for a data steward education and certification
  • Data managers from Utrecht University will give two presentations: One about their research data service, and the other about their YOUth data collection program

Each presentation will last for about 10 minutes and the session ends with a plenary discussion about the role of the data steward.
