The FAIRsFAIR Roadshow will virtually visit Spain on 23 June 2021 to offer a FAIR programme.

EN: On June 23, FAIRsFAIR in collaboration with the Scientific Information Resources Unit for Research (URICI) of the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) organizes an online event open to the entire Spanish community on the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) and the participation of data repositories.
