GEDE Webinar on the EOSC Process with the Chairs of two EOSC Working Groups

Date: 
07 Nov 2019 - 14:00

The EOSC governance has been put in action, i.e. the Governance and Executive Boards are operating and five EOSC Working Groups have been setup: Landscape WG to map existing RIs, FAIR WG to implement FAIR principles, Architecture WG to define a technical framework, Rules of Participation WG to define obligations of participants and Sustainability WG to make suggestions for an EOSC federation after 2020. The pressure for these WGs is high since they are asked to develop recommendations by 2020 to design the steps for the next phase of EOSC.

Trustworthy data repositories in the Life Sciences: The role of CoreTrustSeal Certification

Date: 
29 May 2019 - 13:00

This webinar will provide an introduction to the importance and benefits of repository certification in the context of highlighting the prominent roles of data repositories in enabling data FAIR. Participants will have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the CoreTrustSeal certification requirements and procedures, gaining a better understanding of the necessary steps for certification, and how compliance with documented criteria may be met. CoreTrustSeal experts with a background in the Life Sciences will report on their experiences with CoreTrustSeal certification of a few certified biomedical data repositories and answer certification-related questions.

RDA GEDE Webworkshop on Adaptation of Repositories to the Digital Object Interface Protocol

Date: 
22 May 2019 - 14:00 to 16:00

The use of FAIR Digital Objects to implement the FAIR principles and to make data practices more efficient is now widely accepted. It is also widely agreed that repositories are the care takers of FAIR Digital Objects, i.e., they need to store, manage and curate DO's bit sequences, maintain globally resolvable PIDs for the DOs and manage metadata of different kinds describing the DO’s bit sequence. The DO Interface Protocol is the unified protocol that allows to create and access FAIR DOs independent of how a repository is organising and modelling its data. Thus, repositories should talk DOIP, but the reality is different. The detailed discussion about the adaptation of these examples will help to estimate the efforts and costs for related other cases. At the RDA plenary in Helsinki we intend to discuss other cases in detail.

The RDA Secretariat aims to promote the uptake of RDA outputs in all its regions. In this context the RDA secretariat is working on is a series of webinars that aim to train stakeholders for adoption. The webinars will highlight outputs for adoption, ask adopters to tell their story and show the added value of RDA. The first edition is titled Outputs to Support Reproducible Health Research and scheduled for 22 March 2019 at 8am PDT/ 11am EDT/ 3pm UTC.

GEDE Webinar on Maturity Indicators for FAIRness and Certification of Repositories

Date: 
22 Mar 2019 - 14:00
Organiser: 

Peter Wittenburg, GEDE Co-Chair

Presenters: 

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.
