    Imagine a dream scenario for Open Data advocates: A working field station that supports scientists with research data management practices that allow for their data to be used beyond the initial purpose of the project! Tetiaroa is such a place and the FAIR Island Project ( supports researchers as we translate the broader FAIR principles into optimal data policies and technical infrastructure by leveraging RDA outputs including standards that support networked, machine-actionable Data Management Plans (DMPs), and Persistent Identifiers (PIDs). Leveraging the global research data management community’s work, FAIR Island provides a real-world example where data and knowledge collected on Tetiaroa will be curated and made openly available as quickly as possible.
    The FAIR Island project examines the impact of implementing optimal research data management policies and requirements, affording us the unique opportunity to look at the outcomes of strong data policies at a working field station. Building on the Island Digital Ecosystem Avatars (IDEA) Consortium (see Davies et al. 2016), the FAIR Island Project leverages collaboration between the University of California Gump Station, located on Moorea in French Polynesia, and Tetiaroa Society, which operates a newly established field station located on the atoll of Tetiaroa.
    Who should attend?
    This webinar will showcase initial experiments and expected benefits of machine actionable DMPs for primary stakeholders in the data management ecosystem include enabling:
    1. Researchers to manage, share, and discover data more efficiently.
    2. Infrastructure providers (e.g., data repositories) to plan their resources.
    3. Institutions (e.g., academic libraries and their parent research universities) to provide practical, evidence-based data services.
    4. Funders (e.g., NSF) to monitor the data-related activities associated with individual grants.
    All these stakeholders should consider attending and will find this work compelling.
    We appreciate your help and look forward to seeing you at the webinar.
    Thank you –
