Data Stewardship, Roles, Tasks

afbeelding fragment voorzijde LCRDM rapport Datastewardship EN



The LCRDM Task Group Data Stewardship has written a report that provides insight in what Dutch institutes currently demand of data stewards and also what has been currently asked for, implemented and developed by and for them. This offers the basis for a clearer job description for data stewardship roles.

The report presents findings and attempts a translation into practice.

Practical guidelines

Data Stewards Interest Group

In June 2017, the Data Steward Interest Group (IG) was initiated by members of the Leiden UMC, UMC Utrecht and DTL. The distinguishing feature of this IG compared to other initiatives related to Data stewardship is the practical and solution-oriented approach to practical matters.

The approach involves monthly virtual meetings of the task groups, with the IG meeting taking place physically every two months.
