This working group brings data stewards together to explore opportunities for cross-institutional collaborations to deliver education and training for data supporters and researchers
  4. Interactive brainstorming
    Host: Zafer Öztürk, Data Steward FAIR, University of Twente The last part of this breakout session will be dedicated to the challenges, new ideas that would fit the aforementioned working groups or the creation of possible new working groups. Zafer will guide you through this interactive last part. We are curious to hear more from you all!

Communities in the spotlight > 16.30 – 17.00
This is an opportunity to discover other communities in data management, FAIR, and Open data. Members of the communities will share their experiences and highlight the importance of the role of communities in the scientific landscape.
