International perspectives and initiatives on "third spacers" - talk 2020 - Michelle Barker

Michelle Barker

Talk given at “Third Space: The Depth”, an informal web event to explore the computational research support space in different institutions on 28 May 2020. This talk highlights OECD and other international initiatives supporting changes to university career paths and reward structures to recognise the emergence of new roles such as research software engineers and data stewards.

The event was co-organised by Melbourne Data Analytics Platform (MDAP) at the University of Melbourne, and Sydney Informatics Hub (SIH) at the University of Sydney. “Third space” is used to describe the workforce of data-intensive research enablers (and their landscape) situated somewhere between traditional academic and professional roles.
