Focus on FAIR - FAIR Data and the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC)


One-day workshop hosted by Graz University of Technology on 7th November 2019

FAIR data and the European Open Science Cloud are two crucial building blocks for the future of collaborative, data-driven research. Much work is currently ongoing to turn these high-level principles and concepts into reality: as concrete infrastructure, standards and practices. A year since the signing of the Declaration and the launch of the EOSC in Vienna, Graz University of Technology invites researchers and research support staff to meet to discuss future priorities for EOSC and FAIR data at the international, national and regional levels. Through expert presentations and interactive sessions, it will advance discussion on these topics, whilst also providing an accessible introduction to these topics for newcomers.

This Focus on Open Science event is organized by the Graz University of Technology (Digital TU Graz project) in collaboration with Scientific Knowledge Services, UCL Press, and LIBER (The European Association of Research Libraries).

The Workshop will be a full-day event, covering all aspects of FAIR data and regional, national and international EOSC-relevant initiatives, including links to industry. The language of the Workshop will be English and everyone is welcome.

The event will be sponsored by the Open Access journal Publications (ISSN 2304-6775), and to coincide with the event, the journal will host a special issue dedicated to these topics. See the special issue Call for Papers, which is open to all.
