FAIRsFAIR National Roadshow in United Kingdom
26 November 2021

This two hour online interactive event will bring together professionals in the open research space to discuss the aspects of provision of training.  The multidisciplinary workshop is building on the work of a collaborative group - the Open Research Competencies Coalition (ORCC). The event is organised in collaboration with JISC and the EOSC Synergy project.

The workshop is intended to share information and collectively build a resource linking to existing activities and opportunities for training of both researchers and the trainers. While intended to discover examples of best practice internationally, one outcome of the event will be to identify gaps in the existing training provision. This is an early component of a larger landscape report to create a useful resource for the community.
