FAIR Festival 2021

  • 21 June 2021
  • 23 June 2021
  • Location: Virtual
  • Organizer: GFISCO

Summery temperatures, chilled drinks and high-spirited people are just a few of the characteristics that come to mind when thinking about festivals in June. Let’s take full advantage of the effervescent energy of summer, and virtually round up the community for three half days to celebrate the FAIR shift in research data management. We want to pave the way for future GO FAIR community activities and build on the achievements of the past few years. Gather your good vibes, and join us online for our FAIR Festival 2021!

For three years now, the GO FAIR Initiative has supported numerous pioneers in FAIR research data management – from the early days to the gathering at the International FAIR Convergence Symposium last November. Meanwhile, the European Open Science Cloud and National Research Data Infrastructure in Germany came into place. Where will the journey go from here?

Target Group

With the FAIR Festival 2021 we aim to provide a forum for researchers, librarians, practitioners, developers, politicians, and other important stakeholders to discuss and exchange their FAIR experiences and strategies. We will focus on reusable implementations that resulted from real-world use cases and take most recent developments into account.

Programme & Logistics

The FAIR Festival 2021 will feature plenary sessions, provide an open space to continue ongoing discussions as well as allow a collaborative “Deep Dive” into crisp sessions where FAIR practices on GO BUILD – GO TRAIN – GO CHANGE will be presented by our Implementation Networks.

Check out the programme. The conference language will be English, and participation will be free of charge.
