Available spaces: 18/ 120
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 fourth session of the FAIR Coffee lectures, on February 15 2022 at 11 am, we’ve invited Dr. Kathleen Gregory. She is a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Vienna and affiliated to the Department of Science and Technology Studies. Her work examines data practices through a critical data studies lens, focusing on how people manage, discover, make sense of, and use research data in academia and in public life. In her lecture titled “The flip side of FAIR: How do researchers find and reuse data” she focuses on the practices of researchers who are finding and reusing data. How do researchers across disciplines actually discover and use data that they do not create themselves? 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
  • 11.05 Main lecture by Dr. Kathleen Gregory (Including discussion/questions)
  • 11.50 Caffeine quiz & closing statement
