ZB MED explained: Data Steward
A Data Steward is, generally said, a person who is responsible for ensuring the quality of data assets, including metadata. However, the tasks of data stewards are very different and fulfil different requirements.
This is also the case in the field of research. Good research data management is essential in research. Data stewards play a crucial role here, as they support researchers in this task and take on the role of intermediaries between the different fields of work.
Justine Vandendorpe is working as a data steward at ZB MED for the NFDI cosortia NFDI4microbiota. In this video she explains what her tasks as a data steward look like.
