Participants from several countries will join experts on research data management in Vienna this October to learn about FAIR practices and data stewardship. The week of workshops will mark the beginning of the new certificate course “Data Steward” offered by the University of Vienna.
Continuing Education in the Field of Data Management
The course represents the first formal further education program for data stewards in Austria. Led by Claudia Plant – professor for data mining – this English-language course lasts two semesters part-time and links the latest findings on research data management, open science and open research with the tasks of data stewards. Based on the results of the FAIR Data Austria project, the course will foster peer-to-peer learning and allow the students to quickly become active members of the international data steward community.
