Data Steward Interest Group
The Data Steward Interest Group (DSIG) is an informal and inclusive data stewardship community that promotes peer-learning though knowledge and experience exchange. The community is open to everyone who is interested in data stewardship and regularly organises (online) meetings and events, and has an active online presence through the Slack platform.
Meetings are not limited to a specific academic discipline or limited to the Netherlands, but it is Netherlands based. To allow variety and include various local activities on data stewardship, each meeting is organised and chaired by a different organisation. Hence, domain specific topics or meetings (LSH/NES/SSH) alternate with cross-domain general meetings. Additionally, extra initiatives such as the topical/Special Interest Groups (SIG) are organised that may result from the discussion in the DSIG meetings.

- Providing a platform for data stewards and like-minded in the Netherlands (and abroad) to share experiences.
