Call for Nominations for the 2019 World Data System Data Stewardship Award28 May 2019
Annual prize celebrating contributions of early career researchers to the involvement of scientific data stewardship through their (1) engagement with the community, (2) academic achievements, and (3) innovations.
Promoting Early Career Researchers
In today’s digital era, data-enabled scientific research cannot fully benefit society without scrupulous data stewardship. The pressing challenges faced by the planet and humankind require discipline-integrated research and sound science-driven policies that are critically dependent on trusted scientific data. The World Data System (WDS) of the International Science Council (ISC) supports long-term stewardship of quality-assured scientific data and data services across a range of disciplines in the natural and social sciences, and the humanities. The WDS Data Stewardship Award highlights exceptional contributions to the improvement of scientific data stewardship by early career researchers through their engagement with the community, academic achievements, and innovations.
The 2019 WDS Data Stewardship Award will be presented at the next SciDataCon (dates and venue to be confirmed) and will include:
- Award presentation
- Conference participation: travel expenses (economy airfare), lodging costs, and registration
- A prize
