Materials relating to the fourth webinar of Cambridge Data Week 2020. How should researchers' data management activities and skills be supported? What are the data management responsibilities of the funder, the institution, the research group and the individual researcher? This session explores approaches to this issue by looking at different implementations of support in both the UK and Europe, as well as asking funders what they want to see happening in research institutions.

Tao-Tao Chang discusses research data management support from a funder's perspective and current plans for investment.

Marta Teperek explains how data management support can be effectively provided to researchers through a combination of three different approaches: central data management support, disciplinary data stewards and group-level data managers.

Al Downie talks about departmental walls, infrastructure design, and changing research culture.
