Data stewardship services in Switzerland

In January 2020, the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI) commissioned swissuniversities to draw up a Swiss National Strategy for Open Research Data. The Action Plan for Open Research Data (ORD) published in January 2022 concretizes the measures of the ORD strategy. It includes the implementation of Data Stewardship measures in all member institutions, involving the management and monitoring of the institutions's data assets with the aim of enabling access to research data.

Data stewards take on an active advisory role for researchers and serve as the first point of contact for all questions relating to (open) research data, e.g. on data management, data backup or long-term storage.
