The Data Autonomy project has the honor to count with a team of ambassadors that help with the project awareness and with the community growth. Our ambassadors usually contribute to the project by:
Creating awareness of the topic and the project by spreading the word and talking about the topic with colleagues, partners, collaborators, etc. Anyone related to the UG, and therefore affected by the university dependencies.
Building and fostering a strong community by motivating and inviting others to join us on this journey.
Contributing to the blog on our website dedicated to data autonomy by writing a column on the topic and/or creating a network of fellow writers that also have something to say on this blog
Supporting and contributing to the events in whatever form suits our ambassadors.
Would you also like to become an ambassador for the Data Autonomy project? Everybody who is interested in contributing is welcome!

As a license and contract administrator we guide employees of the University of Groningen to acquire the software needed for research, education and operations. As knowledge and awareness about handling data grows so does the need for support. We screen, together with other stakeholders, all the software and give a clear insight in the risks regarding data privacy and security. Also some subject regard data autonomy are being investigated.
