Open Science - What is FAIR data and what does it mean for handling research data?Albert Mons & Erik Schultes, GO FAIR International Support and Coordination Office
A unique opportunity to hear from two experts on FAIR Data (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) based at the GO FAIR offices in Leiden, Netherlands. GO FAIR are working on the implementation of FAIR Data in support of EOSC (European Open Science Cloud).
Funders such as the European Commission and Health Research Board are introducing expectations that the research data underlying published research will be referenced and made available whenever possible. This helps to support the integrity and reproducibility of the research, as well as being part of a broader trend to forms of open science.
