Dear Colleagues,

If you know an Early Career Researcher or Scientist (ECR) in research data
management who is planning to attend EGU 2020, then please encourage them
to submit an abstract to the below WDS PICO session.

Please share far and wide.

Many thanks!

The European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly 2020
<http://www.egu2020.eu/> will be held on 3–5 May 2020 in Vienna, Austria. The
World Data System of the International Science Council
<http://world-data-system.org> is leading the following session, and we
would like to encourage your abstract submission by the deadline of *Wednesday,
15 January 2020, 13:00 CET*.

*Session ID:* ESSI3.7
*Session Title:* *Inspiring the Next Generation of Geoscience Data
Stewards: Current Achievements of Future Leaders
*Section/Focus Group*: ECRs from all different disciplines in the

*Session Description*
Data are at the core of all research in the Geosciences. We live in an age
where technologies enable the acquisition of ever-increasing amounts of
digital data; government and funder directives and policies demand for Open
Science and Open Data; and journals require authors to not only publish
data behind research results to ensure transparency and reproducibility,
but also that they are stored in a trustworthy domain repository. This
environment means new strategies, principles, and practices are needed to
curate, manage, and preserve data such that they are available and
accessible for future generations. Nevertheless, whilst Research Data
Management (RDM) is becoming more and more important, it is often
underrated and considered ‘less of a priority’.

This PICO session is timely, and will showcase ECRs from all different
disciplines in the Geosciences who are dedicated data stewards, developing
and promoting best practice in data management and data sharing. By
highlighting their expertise and exceptional contributions to RDM, we hope
to inspire other young researchers to take responsibility for their data
and to make the best use of existing services.
