Irish Data Stewardship Network Roadshow

Published: 15 Sep, 2023

Do you generate or manage research data? Have you written a data management plan? Could you be a data steward?

Join the Sonraí Irish Data Stewardship Roadshow at the National College of Ireland, IFSC, on the 10th of October 2023 from 11.00 until 13.00.

Sonraí - Irish Data Stewardship Network aims to establish a national network that will foster, enable, and advocate for developing research data management and data stewards nationally. 

To begin this journey, we are hosting roadshows in research performing organisations across Ireland with the aim of;  

  • raising awareness of the role of data stewards,   
  • highlighting the need for more and to help those involved in research  
  • helping existing researchers working with data to recognise their activities as data stewardship 

You are invited to this 2-hour event (including lunch), where you will hear more about the work of the network and discuss in groups the role of data stewards and what you see as the role of our new network.
