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

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

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

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.
