On 3 October 2017, the National Coordination Point Research Data Management (LCRDM) and UKB working group Research Data are organising a networking meeting for colleagues working in the new data professions. During the meeting, participants will get to know each other and learn from each other’s experiences. You can now register for the workshop.
The meeting aims to connect those working in the new data professions, including data stewards, data scientists, and research data managers. Several speakers will give presentations on aspects of these new data professions, such as the position and responsibilities of the data steward within the organisation, and how to motivate engagement. In addition to these presentations, participants will discuss specific topics in break-out sessions. Examples of these topics are project management, data management plans, and collaborating and sharing data in the cloud. Visit the LCRDM website to see the programme and register.
This meeting is relevant to colleagues working in the new data professions at universities and research institutes. These people provide research data management support to researchers. Various job titles refer to his role, such as data steward, data scientist, or research data manager.
