FAIR Essentials workshop

The FAIR Essentials workshop focuses on teaching you what FAIR is and how to apply it to your research. The workshop will use a Problem Based Learning (PBL) approach: we will build both a collective discussion of what is actually FAIR and what it means to different disciplines. We will then integrate what we have learned collectively by making FAIR exercises in break-out room sessions.

The participants will have a tutor available to answer questions about the exercises. However, it is up to the group to solve the exercises. At the end we will build a collective road-map of FAIR points in a plenary session.

Learning objectives:

  • Get basic theoretical knowledge about what is FAIR and how and if it could be applied to all scientific disciplines.
  • Articulate benefits, barriers and challenges in making data and other outputs FAIR.
  • Learn collectively through independent hands-on experience with techniques, services and technologies to make your data FAIR or help others make their data FAIR.
  • Together come up with a collective road-map of ideas on what it means to “be FAIR”. This last objective will also be used to keep building and improving the course in the future.
