Librarian for TU Delft (Delft University of Technology)
Alastair runs 4TU.ResearchData, the data archive for the technical sciences on behalf of the 4 technical universities in the Netherlands, and is also head of the Research Data Services within TU Delft.
His (current) biggest challenge is persuading researchers of the benefits of research data – a task that not only requires knowledge of research processes, but realises the importance of building trust and good relationships.
Previously, Alastair has worked for the cultural heritage innovators Europeana, and for JISC, the UK’s shared service for ICT in education
