Event description

Description

This is one of several focus groups exploring the use of FAIR data principles within UK academic research.

This focus group is aimed at researchers, if you are a research support professional, please book on the research support professionals focus group. There is an additional focus group in London for researchers.

In ‘FAIR in Practice’ as the Jisc project is called, we are exploring questions around how data is used in research, and to what extent it is findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable.

Background to the work is described in this blog post by Bas Cordewener, project manager for FAIR in practice at Jisc.

Your participation will help to get an overview of the current state of data being FAIR and identifying opportunities to improve. The focus group will allow you to exchange views and expertise on FAIR principles with interested colleagues. Discussions will contribute to a better understanding of the principles and their potential to enhance research in the UK.

Lunch will be provided.
