OGS at the first meeting of the Italian Data Steward Community

NODC spoke at the first meeting of the Italian Data Steward Community, which took place in Rome on 7 November. The event was organised by the Competence Centre of the Italian Computing and Data Infrastructure (CC-ICDI) in collaboration with the EU project Skills4EOSC and GARR, the Italian national computing network for universities and research. The aim of the meeting was to promote the development of the skills of data stewards in Italy and to support their recognition.

Together with some of the most important Italian research institutes and digital infrastructures, the National Institute of Oceanography and Applied Geophysics - OGS participates in the ICDI working group, whose aim is to optimise the implementation of the principles of open science in our country. Specifically, the role of the ICDI Competence Centre is to create a network of experts, initiatives and research infrastructures to support the national open science community and its participation in the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).

The meeting of the Italian Data Steward Community coincided with the meeting of the CC-ICDI, at which topics relevant to the data steward community were discussed. In the afternoon, the Italian Data Steward Community was officially launched, paving the way for new opportunities for collaboration and knowledge sharing.
