Launch of international DSCC network

  • By Bert Meerman

International Network of FAIR Data Stewardship Competence Centers launched

An interesting and very positive trend is the fact that more and more institutes and universities are hiring and training data stewards to assist researchers with their data management plans and in making their data FAIR. This allows researchers to concentrate on his/her domain and for the data steward to develop into an expert. The grouping of data stewards in FAIR Data Steward Competence Centers (DSCC) is the latest trend seen in a number of countries.
