World Data System Data Stewardship Award 2019

The WDS Data Stewardship Award is given annually to early-career researchers who have demonstrated excellence in scientific data stewardship.

World Data System Data Stewardship Award 2019

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 Award will be given each year and will be presented at the subsequent SciDataCon Conference. The 2019 WDS Data Stewardship Award will thus be presented at the next SciDataCon (dates and venue to be confirmed).

The 2019 Award will include:
