FAIR Essentials

Due to COVID-19,the workshop is offered online via Zoom. After registration, you will receive a link for the session.

Course Description

This course lies its basis within the PBL approach of Maastricht University. In this sense, 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 doing FAIR in break-out room sessions.

The participants will have a tutor available to answer questions about the exercises. However, it is up to them to develop the exercises. The intention is to build a collective road-map of FAIR points in an ending 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 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 point will be used to keep building the course in the future.
