The Call for Nominations for the 2019 WDS Data Stewardship Award is now open until 29 July 2019. This annual prize celebrates the exceptional contributions of early career researchers to the improvement of scientific data stewardship through their (1) engagement with the community, (2) academic achievements, and (3) innovations. We are also pleased to announce that the process has been opened up from this year, and nominations may now be made any scientific organization, group, body, union, or otherwise.
The winner for the 2019 Data Stewardship Award will be presented with their Award and a prize in plenary at the next SciDataCon (dates and venue to be confirmed)—alongside the 2020 Award winner—with their attendance covered by the World Data System.
If you know of an early career researcher who deserves to have their accomplishments recognized and highlighted to the international community then please be sure to complete the below form (see notes) and send it to the WDS International Programme Office by 29 July 2019. We also encourage you to disseminate this information far-and-wide.
