Data Agents and Data Advisor

Data Agents are researchers who work to improve data management in their department, school, or unit. They are a practical, hands-on, first point of contact resource to researchers in their department.

Data Advisor is a full-time specialist working on the Aalto University level and supports research staff in all departments.

Our mission is better data management

A cultural change is needed to maximise Aalto University's research impact. We have recruited Data Agents to ensure that data is managed properly and it is possible to open. Proper data management is essential to achieving open science goals:

  1. Optimal use and reuse of research data (Strategic Goal of Aalto University)
  2. Aalto 2022: Strong open research data capabilities (Digitalisation Strategy, Aalto University)

 

How can the Data Agents help you?

Data Agents extend the support services with discipline-specific expertise and they can help with everyone's particular needs. Everyone these days uses data in different forms, yet our ability to handle it well has not always kept up and it can easily get lost or not fully utilised.

Tasks of the agents include:

  • Foster reuse of data
  • Help researchers, research groups, and departments to manage data well
  • Help with publishing data in a suitable repository
  • Giving feedback and contributing to the development of data support services in Aalto University

 

How can the Data Advisor help you?

Data Advisor, in addition to the responsibilities of the Data Agents, can help you by solving the following questions:

  • How to handle personal data?
  • How to store and share research data with collaborators?
  • How to organize and document your research data?
  • How to publish open datasets/codes?
  • How to choose a suitable repository for dataset/code?
  • How to choose the license for dataset/code?
  • How to write and follow a good data management plan for your research project?
  • How to comply with open science requirements?
