As research data becomes more openly available, data stewardship is a skill in high demand, both within and beyond academia.

Master theory and concepts of data management
Learn how to collect, analyse and manage research data with hands-on digital skills training, and on-site practical assignments in non-academic settings

The course on Data stewardship has been developed by the UiT – The Arctic University of Norway and will be piloted at the University of Chemistry and Technology Prague, Czechia and at Karlstad University, Sweden.

Ten thematic elements include individual steps of the research data management lifecycle from data collection through the data storage, sharing, and publishing to data search and re-use. A chapter on preparing a data management plan will also be included. The FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable) data principles should be emphasized.
