If you are a researcher we would like to invite you to take part in a free event exploring the use of FAIR data principles within UK research on 13th Sept in London or 26th Sept in Newcastle.
The event is part of the Jisc ‘FAIR in Practice’ project, which is exploring questions around how data is used in research and to what extent it is ‘FAIR’ (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Re-usable).The idea that research outputs should be FAIR is emerging to enhance effective data management and sharing. How it is implemented may have a direct impact on research policies and systems. This is an opportunity to influence how these high level aims are implemented in practice. These focus groups will help provide a view of the current state of FAIR data, identify opportunities and allow the exchange of views on the FAIR principles with colleagues.
Background to the work is described in the blog post at:
