The FAIR Coffee lectures – 29 June 2021

Published on 08 Jun 2021

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!


Each 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


In this fourth session of the FAIR Coffee lectures, we’ve invited Danyel Jennen from the Department of Toxicogenomics to give a presentation entitled “FAIR data in Toxicogenomics: the Good, the Bad, the Ugly” (abstract) in which he will talk about FAIR and Open Science in the toxicogenomics field, one of the front-runners in making data FAIR and Open. He will also cover the difficulties his department encountered in making their data FAIR.

The program is as follows:

A quick introduction on FAIR/Open Science and the FAIR Coffee lecture series (15 minutes)

Main lecture by Danyel Jennen (40 minutes, including discussion/questions)

Caffeine quiz (5 minutes)

You can register 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!
