The Task Force Data stewardship, curriculum and career paths will focus on the Data Stewards role and their core activities.
To help researchers to make FAIR data it is necessary to have professional staff. To keep professional staff, we need to have a common curriculum for their skills and possibilities for career paths.
The Data stewardship, curricula and career paths Task Force focuses on the Data Stewards role and their core activities. The TF is engaging with all stakeholders, including for example the RDA Group on Professionalizing Data Stewardship and EUA, but also with other EOSC-A Task forces. We aim to build on the extensive work done by all stakeholders, including the recommendations from the Digital Skills for FAIR and Open Science report of the EOSC Working Group Skills & Training. The TF will consolidate current insights, recommendations and implementation examples and make them available for all stakeholders. The two main work streams in the TF are focussing on the minimal curriculum and on the career paths for data stewards. Since the TF is rather small, we welcome new members. Please contact us if you are interested in working with us.
