FAIR Coffee lecture – Shashank Chakravarthy and Gijs van Dijck

Available spaces: 82/ 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 June 28 2023 at 11 am, we’ve invited Shashank Chakravarthy and Prof. Gijs van Dijck. Shashank Chakravarthy is research engineer at the Brightlands Institute for Smart Society (BISS). He focuses on engineering research problems with data engineering, Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. Gijs van Dijck works at the Maastricht University Faculty of Law where he is director of the Maastricht Law and Tech Lab. He is also a Principal Investigator at BISS and researcher at M-EPLI.

In their lecture entitled “FAIR Legal Network Analysis Research Software? Experiences & Challenges” they will explore their experiences with using FAIR research software for legal network analysis. 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 Shashank Chakravarthy and Gijs van Dijck (Including discussion/questions)
