Services To Support FAIR Data: A Series Of Three Workshops In Europe

Part 1 – Prague, 12 April 2019


Target audience: service providers and research infrastructures


OpenAIRE, RDA Europe, FAIRsFAIR and EOSC-hub are holding a series of three workshops, two in April and one in September, called ‘Services to Support FAIR Data’.

The first workshop in the series takes place at the EOSC-hub Week 2019 in Prague on the 12th of April 2019.

The purpose of this workshop series is to explore how existing infrastructures can work together and understand how to deliver services that support the creation of FAIR research outputs. The three half-day events will examine the scholarly and research ecosystem, what exists, what could be modified, and will give insights into optimum service provisioning. They will also be a chance to engage experts and audiences on how to turn FAIR data into reality.

Themes explored will be:

  • what are the priorities that we need to work towards to support the production of FAIR research outputs?
  • what services currently exist that provide FAIR outputs and what are their experiences?
  • present use cases for supporting FAIR research outputs
  • what are the priorities for any future service certification process?

Each workshop will have slightly different objectives and be targeted at different communities. These include service providers, e-infrastructures, national representatives, infrastructure providers and scholarly communication experts. A common thread throughout is to work towards a common set of insights and recommendations to support the scholarly landscape move on in implementing practical services that meet the needs of tomorrow’s FAIR-oriented researchers.

Take-aways: The organisations involved in these workshops aim to support the EOSC implementation by providing a practical set of recommendations which occur as an outcome of these three workshops.
