Peter Wittenburg, GEDE Co-Chair
Maggie Hellström (GEDE, ICOS), Erik Schultes (GOFAIR), Mark Wilkinson (GOFAIR), Ingrid Dillo (FAIRsFAIR, CTS), Edit Herczog (GEDE, RDA)
The FAIR principles are being accepted widely in the scientific community now as a pre-condition for making data driven science more efficient. Consequently, various initiatives are busy to identify what machine-actionable FAIRness functionally means and how levels of FAIRness can be objectively and reproducibly assessed. Given the huge amount of data it is also becoming obvious that tools are required that measure FAIRness automatically. This webinar therefore is an excellent opportunity to listen first to one of the designers behind the FAIR principles and first simple criteria for FAIRness (Erik Schultes), to a colleague who already is working on suggestions of how to automate measuring FAIRness (Mark Wilkinson) and of a colleague responsible involved in CoreTrustSeal and now also in the new FAIRsFAIR project of the EC (Ingrid Dillo). In addition, Edit Herczog will briefly explain what the task of the FAIR Maturity Working Group within RDA will be.
