Towards cultural change in data management - data stewardship in practice

Event: Towards cultural change in data management- Data Stewardship in practice

TU Delft is proud to be a frontrunner of the global move towards greater openness and better collaboration on research data. Data Stewardship was recognised at TU Delft as a key component of its Open Science programme. The university appointed dedicated Data Stewards at every faculty with the goal of improving awareness of good research data management practices.

While the Data Stewardship project is now moving into the implementation phase, we want to share our experiences at the event: Towards cultural change in data management- Data Stewardship in practice on the 24th of May at the Bouwcampus.


During this event, we will explore the following issues:

- How to achieve cultural change in research data management?
- Why is good Data Stewardship important?
- Why do we care and why should researchers care?

First, Danny Kingsley from the University of Cambridge will speak about research integrity and research reproducibility as the drivers for better Data Stewardship practices. This will be followed by case studies from TU Delft and from other organisations about the practical implementation of data stewardship. Subsequently, participants will be invited to take part in smaller focus groups and workshops on the topic. Finally, Kim Huijpen from the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU) will speak about rewarding researchers for doing quality research.
