Digital Competence Center thematic session on FAIR data & good practice of science

In last month's DCC session, we’ve learned more about preservation of data, during and after your research. An interesting topic, but there is more behind it, so one month wasn’t enough to explore all that. Therefore we’ve chosen this month’s topic to be about data again, but this time about FAIR data. FAIR stands for Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable. A nice introduction to this topic has been given by Maastricht University in this video. Preservation of research data contributes to the quality and impact of your scientific work because it enables verification and possible reuse, for instance for further analysis or follow-up, new research, or as a contribution to a data resource for the scientific community.

On June 28, from 10:00-11:00 o’clock, a DCC thematic session about this topic will be organized for all of you. The program will be as follows:

10:05-10:20 Associate Professor Luiz Bonino da Silva Santos, who is also international technology coordinator at the Go FAIR initiative, will talk about the current state of FAIR based on its’ first starting point in 2014 which results in the first FAIR paper published in Nature in 2016 and the developments in the field since then.

10:20-10:30 Discussion, Q&A

10:30-10:45 Dr. Ria Wolkorte & Dr. Michelle Kip will present about their current work,  their interest in Citizen Science and how their road crossed with FAIR Data through the FAIR Data Fund from 4TU.ResearchData

10:45-11:00 Discussion, Q&A, closing

We hope to see all of you on the 28th! Register via our events page, to make sure you won’t miss it!
