New FAIRsharing Community Curation Programme: Call for Participants

    We are proud to announce the official launch of the FAIRsharing Community Curation Programme! Together with our initial set of community curators, who have helped us prototype the programme and have already received attribution and other benefits, we are now actively seeking additional community curators across all subject areas (Engineering, Natural Sciences, and Humanities and the Social Sciences). I’m looking at the RDM in Engineering IG because 1) people interested in RDM generally have a deep knowledge of the standards, databases and policies that are available within their domain, and 2) I would like to target the Engineering Sciences, as I feel this is an area where FAIRsharing could improve its provision.
    The current call will run through August, with successful participants being contacted by September. Please fill out this form to let us know you’re interested, and get in touch with us via email or Twitter if you have any questions. For more information about the tasks community curators do as well as the benefits, please see our information on joining the programme.
    This initiative is also supported by my RDA / EOSC Future Domain Ambassador for standards, repositories and policies award, as the FAIRsharing Content and Community Lead, and it is also closely linked the work and outputs of the RDA FAIRsharing WG.
    As an individual consider joining us, or please feel free to disseminate our open call to join the FAIRsharing Community Curator Programme across any relevant mailing lists and channels you may think would be relevant. Apologies in advance for any cross posting that may result.
