Venue: Online via Zoom

Country: Sweden

Scientific topic: Data submission, annotation, and curation, FAIR data, Data management

Operations: Formatting, Data handling, Deposition

Target audience:
  • Researchers
  • PhD candidates
Description:

This online workshop will showcase how to put the FAIR principles into practice and is specifically designed to cater to life science researchers at all career stages. It is organised by SciLifeLab Data Centre and NBIS and include international speakers, presenters from the SciLifeLab community and an optional afternoon session with hands-on exercises guided by experts from NBIS and SciLifeLab Data Centre.

The workshop aims to highlight some of the strongest motivators for adopting the FAIR principles and demonstrate how to operationalise them in your projects’ data management practices. While the intended audience is the full spectrum of researchers from experienced principal investigators to early career PhDs the registration open to everyone involved in life science research. To serve participants with varying roles and priorities the day is divided into two companion sessions and you can sign up for one or both at your leisure. The morning session covers the principles and a selection of case studies on how to operationalise them. The afternoon session is based on practical exercises and will provide an opportunity to gain hands-on experience of making research data FAIR.

The overall issues that the sessions aim to address is the fact that an increasing number of policymakers and funders are expecting research projects to adopt the FAIR principles for scientific data management. While the acronym is composed of words that are commonly associated with assessing secondary data—that is that they are Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable—it might not be obvious how to prepare your data to be FAIR.

Invited speakers include international experts on supporting research projects in adopting the FAIR principles and a selection of projects from the SciLifeLab community that illustrate aspects of putting FAIR in practice.

  • Erik Schultes – Lead FAIR Implementation at the GO FAIR Foundation and a member of the Leiden Center for Data Science.
  • Rob Hooft – Technical Coordinator for the Dutch ELIXIR Node and Programme Manager Data Stewardship at the Dutch Techcentre for Life Sciences (DTL).
