Workshop: Advancing FAIR and GO FAIR in the U.S.

  • 25 February 2020

  • Location: Atlanta, USA

The US GO FAIR office organizes another FAIR workshop.

In collaboration with our host, the South Big Data Innovation Hub, SDSC and GO FAIR present a professional development workshop: Advancing FAIR and GO FAIR in the U.S. 

The 2.5 day event will be held February 25-27 in downtown Atlanta, at the CODA building, a center of innovation for the GA Tech university.

The workshop goals are to:

  • Facilitate development of a community of practice for FAIR awareness and capacity-building in the U.S.;
  • Improve understanding of FAIR technologies, and how to teach this to others; and,
  • Preparation for teaching or supporting FAIR data management and policies for researchers, local institutions, professional organizations, and others.

Partnering with Albert Mons (Phortos Consulting), and Luiz Bonino and Erik Schultes (GO FAIR International Support and Coordination Office (GFISCO)), we will learn about experiences in FAIRification and FAIR Data Stewardship training; pedagogy for research data management; and spend time in discussion and planning for building personal, local, and national capacity.

Registration is closed at this time. A report from the workshop will be made available in the coming months.
