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.

FAIR data, FAIRness, FAIR compliance: did you also stumble upon the capitalized version of “fair” often in the past couple of months? Did you sometimes wonder what this acronym means exactly in relation to your own work or for the research community in general? Or do you know about the FAIR principles in detail and would like to get to know more about some of the most recent discussions on that topic? Then the webinar 'FAIR data in practice: From FAIRy tale to FAIR enough' organized by DANS is interesting for you.
