FAIR data in the life sciences: beyond theory October 19

Since 2016, with the publication of the FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) principles (Wilkinson, M., et al.), FAIR data management and stewardship in the life sciences have been at the forefront of numerous publications, talks, research projects and policies at public institutions. Yet, for researchers working with data, applying the FAIR principles to their projects has been a hurdle. A skill gap in the life sciences workforce also hinders the progress toward FAIR data and its benefits in sharing, reusing and safeguarding life sciences data.

This workshop will offer attendees the opportunity to learn about the existing tools to implement FAIR principles tailored to a life sciences user, with toolkits and step-by-step guides. In addition, participants will also discover different training opportunities for personal use and further implementation in their organisations.
