Data Stewards

At the University of Basel, Data Stewards are consultants who offer subject-specific support for research data management. They are the first point of contact for researchers in their respective subject area. In addition to providing direct advice and support, they also serve as a link to other bodies that offer general support in research data management. Their integration into the Research Data Management Network at the University of Basel allows to address subject-specific needs and develop efficient and transferable solutions.
