Available spaces: 61/ 100
Reservation is closed for this event

UM is on a mission to become a leading example in the Open Science movement, which aims to make research papers, data, methods, etc. open to anyone so we can all benefit. The FAIR principles go hand-in-hand with Open Science and they form a great guide to make sure that the research you make Open, can actually be used. With the FAIR Coffee lecture series, the Open Science Community of UM, in collaboration with the Community for Data-Driven Initiatives (CDDI), will help you find out more about these topics and discover how your colleagues have applied Open Science and FAIR principles to their research. These lectures are a perfect chance to dip your toes in the FAIR water and find inspiration in the work of others!

In this second session of the FAIR Coffee lectures, on November 10 2021 at 10 am, we’ve invited Dr Ronald Cornet, from the department of Medical Informatics in the Amsterdam Public Health research institute, Amsterdam UMC to give a presentation entitled “FAIR – From Principles via Practices to Profits” (abstract) in which he will provide in his words “an incomplete view on ongoing activities” in FAIR, and present lessons learnt from various research projects.

His research focuses on semantic interoperability, both from a technical perspective and from a users’ point of view, including natural language processing. This research has resulted in over 70 journal publications and over 80 peer-reviewed conference proceedings.

A four-time awardee of the best-teacher price in the Medical Informatics curriculum at the University of Amsterdam, Ronald is involved in a plethora of health care information standardization initiatives, including the Dutch, European (CEN) and global (ISO) standardization committees on health informatics.

He is also involved in SNOMED International, which is responsible for maintenance and further development of SNOMED CT. He chairs the IMIA working group on Language and Meaning in Biomedicine, and participates in various international projects: FAIR4Health, European Joint Programme Rare Diseases (EJP-RD), CAPABLE, and C4C.

The program is as follows:

  • 10.00 A quick introduction on FAIR/Open Science and the FAIR Coffee lecture series
  • 10.05 Main lecture by Dr Ronald Cornet (Including discussion/questions)
  • 10.50 Caffeine quiz & closing statement
