In 2022, 4TU.ResearchData launched an internship programme for students, early career researchers and professionals seeking further experience in research data management, open science and science communication.

During the year, Jacob Clark worked with Yan Wang (Data Stewardship Coordinator @ TU Delft Research Data Services) on an internship project to qualitatively analyse the impacts of data stewardship at TU Delft.

The project served as a ‘fact check’ to collect qualitative evidence to verify the impacts on research as well as explore the different types of challenges encountered in data steward consultations, policy implementation and training schemes. The work resulted in several reports covering each key aspect of the data stewardship at TU Delft.
