The Interest Group RDM of the TU9 Alliance, Association of German Universities of Technology, invites data stewards, research data officers, research data handling officers, data experts, data curators and data managers, as well as anyone interested in research data management (RDM), to a two-day workshop on RDM in science and engineering. There will be a special focus on the concept of data stewardship. The workshop will be held 25–26 September 2023 at the Open Science Lab of the Saxon State and University Library Dresden (SLUB).

There is an increasing understanding that RDM is neither trivial, nor can it be expected to be a core competence of scientific personnel in research institutes. Through the implementation of data stewards into their existing team structures, more and more research facilities and projects have started to appreciate the impact of sensitising researchers to sustainable RDM practices on the quality of their scientific output.

This workshop provides the opportunity to network and critically analyse problems within the RDM community. It fosters the exchange of knowledge in the developing field of data stewardship through the presentation of innovative solutions and comprehensive evaluations.

The aim of this workshop is to facilitate an exchange of experiences between data stewards, research data (handling) officers, research software engineers, data experts, data curators und data managers from technical and natural science disciplines. It’s a networking opportunity with the chance to discuss current and future developments in the field of data stewardship in Germany and internationally.

The workshop will be covering the following topics:

  • increase of reusability of research data,
  • innovative approaches to the processing and publication of research data,
  • paradigm shift in the publication and reusability of research data,
  • research data management workflows, tools and their support,
  • communication between data stewards and researchers,
  • education, training and consulting by data stewards,
  • challenges and success stories in establishing data stewardship,
  • data steward: definition and tasks,
  • library, computing centre, project: concepts to integrate data stewardship into the institutional infrastructure and daily research practice.

The Morpheus Lab at the Center for Information Services and High Performance Computing (ZIH), as coordinator of a worldwide community and developer of the MorpheusML standard for computer-readable definition of mechanistic multicellular models, will present the world-wide open MorpheusML Model Repository for modeling and simulation in the life sciences and demonstrating how you can participate in the collection of knowledge describing our quantitative understanding of dynamic processes and interactions in biological systems.

We will be participating with a poster and are excited about this great opportunity to engage with the community during the corresponding session as well as throughout the workshop.
