    Dear all,
    I am pleased to say our request for a session at RDA21 @ IDW 2023 has been accepted.
    They want us to add some more precise timings – we did have quite a long list of potential contributors, so we’ll need to refine this agenda a bit.
    It would be good to fit all the talks into say 1 hour and 15 minutes to leave time for discussion.
    Below is the agenda as we submitted – we can change this (I would propose that I include the FAIR assessment as part of my introduction for example).
    Can I ask those in the agenda to confirm that you can still attend and would like to speak?
    1. Enabling FAIR data – a FAIR data toolkit for PaN RIs (encompassing both ExPaNDS and PaNOSC work) – Brian Matthews (with contribution from Andy Götz)
    2. . FAIR principles adoption in US labs – Line Pouchard, Jon Taylor
    3. Extending the toolbox: Data-driven approaches for devising future RDM strategies for photon and neutron facilities in Germany – Markus Kubin
    4. Tools for FAIR facilities
    a. DMPs – Heike Görzig
    b. FAIR vocabularies – Alejandra Gonzalez-Beltran
    c. PIDs for Scientific Data: Applications in Synchrotron and FEL Facilities – Andrei Vukolov
    5. FAIR assessment in Facilities – Brian Matthews
    6 Building a PaN community around FAIR practices:
    a. with ExPaNDS, PaNOSC and OSCARS – Sophie Servan
    b. with LEAPS WG3 and a data management MoU – Majid Ounsy
    7. Discussion on Future IG activities and proposals for recommendations.

    Dear All,
    I was wondering about proposing a session of the Research data needs of the Photon and Neutron Science community IG at the next RDA plenary in Salzburg, 23-26 October 2023? See:
    With the ExPaNDS and PaNOSC projects finishing recently, it would be timely to share these results and also look forward to compare with activity elsewhere and discuss whether we might take this forward – including any results suitable for RDA recommendations.
    The deadline for session proposals is Friday 9th June! Apologies for the lateness of this, but I hope we can put something together.
    I have drafted some text as below – and also at
    (this should be an open link for anyone to comment).
    It would be good to have input from outside Europe? And also volunteers for speakers?
    (I have cheekily suggested some names).
    Meeting title: Tools for working towards the FAIR Facility
    Contact for group (email): ***@***.***
    Group(s) submitting the application: RDA-PANS IG
    Meeting Objectives:
    FAIR data has been rising on the agenda for Photon and Neutron Facilities over the last 10 years, with significant advances being made on the systematic generation and management of data to be FAIR-ly available to encourage its use and reuse. European Photon and Neutron Facilities have been engaged in two significant joint projects: PaNOSC and ExPaNDS; these have finished recently and have developed a toolkit of practical guidance and tools that facilities can use to evolve their systems and processes to deliver FAIR data as it leaves the facility. The toolkit covers areas which are of general interest to the RDA community including:
    Defining FAIR data policy for an data generating institution Defining and sharing metadata standards for annotating data generated within facilities.
    Tools methods and processes for managing experimental data The adoption of suitable Persistent Identifiers within facilities processes.
    The role of Data Management Planning in facilities Applying FAIR Data Assessment to Photon and Neutron Facilities.
    In this session, we would like to present this FAIR toolkit and share it with the wider RDA community, comparing with similar efforts in facilities around the world.
    The toolkit is an evolving body, so we would like to discuss how we might further its adoption and continue to develop it within future programmes.
    Future developments might include developing parts of the toolkit into an RDA recommendation. The IG meeting will discuss this and identify suitable opportunities.
    Meeting presenters:
    Meeting agenda:
    Enabling FAIR data – Lessons from ExPaNDS, a FAIR data toolkit – Brian? Or someone else?
    Implementing FAIR data – Lessons from PaNOSC, – Andy?
    Implementing DMPs – Heike?
    Assessing the FAIRness of Facilities – Brian ? Or Someone else?
    FAIR DATA MANAGEMENT Collaboration – Majid?
