This is the webpage of the RDA Interest Group on professionalising data stewardship. The idea to create an interest group was raised in a BoF session during the 14th Plenary (Helsinki), and a first informal group of interested people was established. At the 15th Virtual Plenary, as second BoF session was organised. We are currently in the process of being endorsed.

 

Are you curious about our ambitions, goals and activities. Make sure to erad our charter (via the 'charter' tab on this webpage). We currently have eight active task groups, tackling the following challenges: 

  • a business case for data stewardship
  • data stewardship terminology
  • the integration of data stewardship across an organisation
  • job profiles for data stewards
  • training for data stewards
  • career tracks for data stewards
  • networking and knowledge exchange
  • and certification. 

 

Most task groups could use active engagement. Each task group/challenge has its own channel in the PDS IG Slack community, so make sure to join the channel of your interest if you want to help out (read here on how to join a channel).

RDA PDS-IG: extra co-chairs appointed & thanks to the task groups

by Mijke Jetten

Dear PDS IG members, Just a quick message to inform you that we have our pack of co-chairs in place. It was very exciting to see the diversity and breadth of the experience that the eight nominees have. We have decided that given the ambitious program of the interest group and the number of task groups it would be beneficial to have a larger than usual group of co-chairs. So we are delighted to inform everyone that we have appointed all extra eight candidates.

Update PDS IG: election, tasks groups & VP16

by Mijke Jetten

Dear PDS IG members, We hope you had a relaxing holiday. Just before the weekend (at least, from the CEST perspective), a short message from our (almost endorsed) IG. Co-chair election There is little over a week left to nominate yourself as co-chair of our lovely IG! We favor an equal distribution over gender and region, so we particularly encourage candidates from outside Europe and Australia to apply. However, you should apply if you are interested no matter what region you are from. Read here

RDA PDS IG: co-chair election, task groups, and P16 session proposal

by Mijke Jetten

Dear PDS IG, A lot of exciting things are happening, now that we are almost endorsed. So here is another message about the PDS IG activities. Co-chair election We are looking for 3 to 5 extra co-chairs, in addition to Peter & Mijke. Sadly, Marta is stepping down as co-chair due to different priorities in her new, exciting job at TU Delft as Head of Research Data Services. Congrats and she will definitely be missed as co-chair! If you have an interest in the work of this group, we strongly encourage

RDA PDS IG: on our way to endorsement & FAIR symposium

by Mijke Jetten

Dear PDS IG, We received a message from the RDA TAB that our charter about professionalising data stewardship makes sense, and that the PDS IG is about to get endorsed as an official Interest Group. Hurray! Two recommendations were made, which we are already actively addressing to get the final endorsement: - Connect to the relevant RDA IG & WG mentioned in our charter, to get their commitment to join forces where possible. - Try to get an equal distribution of co-chairs over regions, including
