DANS Experts at OpenAire Good Practice Exchange Programme
18 February 2021


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.

GPE provides a conduit for knowledge sharing between OpenAIRE NOADs and the day's programme featured numerous speakers from DANS which is a national research data repository as well as a centre of RDM expertise. Participants were welcomed by DANS Deputy Director and FAIRsFAIR Coordinator Ingrid Dillo.

Presentations were spread over three sessions:

  • National initiatives Open Science - featuring an address by guest speaker Loek Brinkman, Assistant Professor at the University Medical Center, Utrecht
  • RDM & FAIR - including a demonstration of FAIR Aware and the Do I pass for FAIR? self assessment
  • DANS data services 


Links to slide presentations and a full report on the day's proceedings are available on the OpenAire website.
