Summit for Academic Institutional Readiness in Data Sharing (STAIRS)

Monday, August 5, 2024

The Data Curation Network will host the Summit for Academic Institutional Readiness in Data Sharing (STAIRS) on August 5-6, 2024!

Goals of the STAIRS Summit:

The STAIRS summit is designed to bring together data service providers, institutional repository (IR) managers, data curation professionals and other key stakeholders from across universities who support managing and sharing research data. We will use the summit to build up our communities of practice for institutionally based research data services and repositories in academic libraries, identifying common areas of need and exploring ways to strengthen connections between institutions. 

Who should apply:

We strongly encourage applicants from a range of institutions that vary in size, research activity, and level of development of services and infrastructure for research data management and sharing. We invite applications from all institutions regardless of Carnegie classification, including Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic-serving institutions, or other Minority-serving institutions.

Attendees can expect topics to include:

  • What is the current state of institutionally based data services and repositories?
  • What are current and emerging expectations for data sharing, as identified in documents such as the Desirable Characteristics of Data Repositories for Federally-Funded Research, and how can we best incorporate them into institutional policies and practices? 
  • What challenges and opportunities are common to institutions and where could institutional data service providers work more closely together as a community to address them?
