NORF Open Research in Ireland webinar: FAIRsFAIR roadshow

Tuesday, March 16, 2021
Zoom Webinar

Date: Tuesday 16 March 2021, 1:00pm-3:00pm GMT
Location: Zoom Webinar
Organisers: NORF Working Group on FAIR data, FAIRsFAIR

As part of a webinar series on Open Research in Ireland, the National Open Research Forum (NORF) is collaborating with FAIRsFAIR to present a webinar focused on FAIR data. FAIRsFAIR – Fostering Fair Data Practices in Europe – aims to supply practical solutions for the use of the FAIR data principles throughout the research data life cycle.

NORF has been developing a National Open Research Landscape Report to summarise progress and challenges in each of the strategic areas of Ireland’s National Framework on the Transition to an Open Research Environment. Against this background, speakers will introduce topics including support for FAIR data through policy enhancement, professionalising data stewardship, and monitoring FAIR data and open science. Participants will be encouraged to give feedback on each topic. 

This webinar is targeted at the national research community in Ireland, including research support staff, librarians, researchers, and funder representatives. We encourage data stewards, managers and coordinators and all those involved in research data support to invite the researchers they work with and vice-versa: strengthening this type of collaboration is at the core of FAIR best practices.
