Who are the curators?

Our curators

Registered users who have actively participated in the communication on Discuss Data (mainly through comments) and proven their expertise can either volunteer or be approached by Discuss Data for the role of curator. If they are accepted/accept, they will be gradually integrated into the editorial process of Discuss Data under the guidance of existing curators.

In the early stages of the project, members of the Discuss Data team in Bremen will fulfil the role of curators. The long-term goal of the project is to establish a community-driven and organised online platform.
