The FAIR Coffee lectures – 13 April 2021
On 13 April, the Open Science Community and CDDI are organising the second FAIR Coffee Lecture edition at Maastricht University. The FAIR principles go hand-in-hand with Open Science to form a great guide to make your research Open and can be (re)-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!
UM is on a mission to become a leading example in the Open Science movement, which aims to make research papers, data, methods open to anyone. Each FAIR Coffee Lecture starts with a short Open Science / FAIR intro, followed by an inspiring lecture from a UM colleague on how they applied FAIR in their work. There will also be a short “caffeine” quiz at the end of the lecture with a chance to win a Bandito Espresso voucher.
The second FAIR Coffee edition will feature a presentation by Kody Moodley, entitled: FAIR experiences from a Data Scientist working in Law & Tech. Kody’s lecture will cover among others what concrete steps an individual researcher can take to improve the FAIRness of the data they produce. The Lecture will take place via Zoom on Tuesday, April 13 from 10:00-11:00. Find out more about upcoming sessions at: https://www.openscience-maastricht.nl/events/ .
The preliminary program is as follows:
- A quick introduction on FAIR/Open Science and the FAIR Coffee lecture series (15 minutes)
- Main lecture by Kody Moodley (40 minutes, including discussion/questions)
- Caffeine quiz (5 minutes)
You can register by leaving your name and e-mail address below. Participation is free, but please register so we can send you the Zoom link and keep you up to date.
The FAIR Coffee lecture series is being launched together with the FAIR Essentials workshop, which is a step up from the lectures and provides you with hands-on training and more background on the why and how of FAIR. The second workshop will take place in June 2021. More information will follow soon!
Looking forward to seeing you online!
