FAIR principles in life science research practice

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 optional hands-on exercises guided by experts from NBIS and SciLifeLab Data Centre.

Time: Thu 2021-12-09 09.00

Location: Online event via Zoom

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.

Acceptance to this workshop is on a first come, first served basis. Registration is required to receive the Zoom link. The afternoon session is limited to 20 participants.
