From 7 to 15 April FAIRsFAIR project insiders and external stakeholders alike had the opportunity to immerse themselves fully in all things FAIR thanks to a series of workshops and meetings that gathered together more than 400 participants (60% from Universities and Research Performing Organisations) from more than 50 countries.
The University of Trento is among the first universities to adhere to the memorandum of understanding of the Italian Computing and Data Infrastructure (ICDI) together with the Bicocca of Milan and the Sissa of Trieste to contribute to the development of the European data strategy.
The goal of this Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) is to strengthen NIH-funded biomedical data repositories to better enable data discoverability, interoperability, and reuse by aligning with the FAIR and TRUST principles and using metrics to measure their effectiveness. This NOSI provides an opportunity for existing repositories to increase ”FAIR”-ness and “TRUST”-worthiness to improve their usage, utility, and impact throughout the data resource lifecycle.
Are you an expert in the FAIR data principles and teach what they mean in practice to students and researchers? Are you developing curricula or do you link FAIR to generic or discipline-specific aspects of data science and RDM? Then we need you! This is an exciting opportunity, and we need your help to make this a reality - join our interactive sessions and together we can make this happen!
Ready to start, in the week from 7 to 15 April, FAIRsFAIR will be offering project insiders and external stakeholders alike the opportunity to immerse themselves fully in all things FAIR!
The first in a series of FAIRsFAIR national roadshows kicked off in the Netherlands on 2 March 2021.
Funders and policy makers have strongly recommended the uptake of the FAIR principles in scientific data management. Several initiatives are working on the implementation of the principles and standardized applications to systematically evaluate data FAIRness. This paper presents practical solutions, namely metrics and tools, developed by the FAIRsFAIR project to pilot the FAIR assessment of research data objects in trustworthy data repositories.
Long-term preservation planning was the topic of a dedicated session offered during February to representatives from the ten repositories selected to receive assistance in achieving CoreTrustSeal certification,
A positive midterm review has confirmed that FAIRsFAIR is on a solid trajectory which is of direct relevance to European research policy and will provide a reference point for researchers, data professionals and infrastructure providers looking to turbocharge their practices.
Research Data Management best practice, data archives, FAIR and open data, and open science policy were the main topics of the online OpenAIRE Good Practice Exchange (GPE) programme organised by Ellen Leenarts and Elly Dijk of FAIRsFAIR coordinating partner DANS on 18 January 2021.
