What is a data steward? What are the activities of a data steward?

The role is so new that even the people that get the title still are working on figuring out what it al entails. This interest group tries to discuss any subjects of interest to data stewards.


  • The group is led by Daphne van Beek, UMCU

This interest group can be joined by anyone that is involved in 'hands-on' data stewardship, i.e. those who are performing stewardship / FAIRification tasks as part of their job description.

Please subscribe to our mailinglist here.


Members of the group are convening regularly in the mornings of the DTL Programmers Meetings

Agendas for meetings, and other documents of the group are collected in a Google Drive Folder
