Towards cultural change in data management - data stewardship in practice

Thursday, May 24, 2018 - 09:30 to 18:00

About the workshop​

During this event, we will explore these issues. 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.
