*Join us on 23 April at 1400 CET for a LIBER Webinar: /Turning FAIR Data
Into Reality — Progress and Plans from the European Commission FAIR Data
Expert Group/
In this webinar, *Simon Hodson*, Executive Director of CODATA
and Chair of the FAIR
Data Expert Group
and *Sarah Jones*, Associate Director at the Digital Curation Centre
Rapporteur, will report on the Group’s progress and the forthcoming report.
The FAIR Data Expert Group was convened in March 2017 with a remit to
propose recommendations and indicators on what needs to be done to turn
FAIR data into reality. The Group was extended in 2018 to develop the
FAIR Data Action Plan. This should guide the implementation of the EOSC
but also address broader concerns on an EU, member state and
international level. The Group’s Plan should act as a rubric for more
context-specific FAIR Data Action Plans to be developed at member state
and disciplinary level.
The interim report of the Group is due in June 2018 and will be launched
at the EOSC Summit in Brussels. The report addresses the changes needed
to research culture, infrastructure, skills, metrics and costs to
support the transition to FAIR. Details of the main discussion points in
the report and preliminary recommendations will be shared on the
webinar.The launch of the interim report on 11th June will be followed
by a workshop where stakeholders are invited to reflect on the content
of the Action Plan and brainstorm how this could be progressed further
in specific national or disciplinary contexts. The consultation period
will continue over Summer with the final report being launched at the
Austrian Presidency event in November.
The LIBER community is invited to join this webinar to get early
insights into the report and reflect on the role of the library
community in supporting the adoption of FAIR data practices.
The webinar is organised by LIBER's Research Data Management Working
Group .
