Research Data Management Workshop 4: Understanding FAIR Data Principles

October 26, 2021 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Research Data Management Workshop #4: Understanding FAIR Data Principles

Workshop Summary:

Participants will be introduced to FAIR Data Principles, examples, and develop FAIR data competencies-. FAIR data is Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable. The FAIR term developed from the Data FAIRport initiative resulting from a Lorentz Workshop in Leiden, Netherlands in 2014. In 2018, the NIH NIEHS Superfund Hazardous Substance Research and Training Program (SRP) P42 (RFA-ES-18-002) solicitation required a new Data Management and Analysis Core (DMAC) to support NIH data sharing policies and promote best principles so data is Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable (FAIR).FAIR is now a community standard for best practices for data.

Course contents:

In this workshop, participants will learn:

  • What are 15 guiding FAIR Data Principles?
  • How are FAIR Data Principles part of data management planning?
  • How to explore a FAIR data example as guide in understanding FAIR data principles?
