Data stewards are professionals equipped with expertise to work effectively with researchers and university services to ensure proper data management. Many universities are implementing formal programs to embed data stewards within university structures. TU Graz has therefore set up a team of data stewards, who have knowledge in their respective disciplines, arrange centralized training at university level, and provide services and support to researchers at TU Graz.
