Available spaces: 76/ 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! Coffee/tea and cookies will be waiting for you!

For this session of the FAIR Coffee lecture, on April 12 2023 at 11 am, we’ve invited Dr. Johan van Soest. He is Assistant Professor and clinical data scientist at the Brightlands institute for Smart digital Society (BISS) which is affiliated to the Clinical Data Science (CDS) research group at Maastricht University and the MAASTRO Clinic. His focus area is on informatics infrastructures and methods for FAIR data and federated data analysis. He will give a presentation entitled “FAIR for whom?” in which he will we will go through several options to make data more FAIR. Furthermore, he will dive into the tools (such as AI models) consuming FAIR data, and how FAIR these should be. More information can be found in the abstract.


The program is as follows:

  • 11.00 A quick introduction on FAIR/Open Science and the FAIR Coffee lecture series
  • 11.10 Main lecture by Johan van Soest (Including discussion/questions)
  • 11.55 Closing statement
