The GO FAIR International Support and Coordination Office cordially invites you to a GO FAIR workshop on “FAIR training and skills” at the ZBW – Leibniz Information Centre for Economics in Hamburg on 25th November 2019 from 9:00 until 16:00 CET.

The objective of the GO TRAIN workshop is to bring together people, concepts and materials from different countries, institutions and disciplines to exchange experiences about FAIR skills and training. Bringing together practitioners from different backgrounds should be an excellent source for each participant and presenter to benefit from new insights and take it on to reuse. New collaborations can help towards a joint implementation and enhanced benefit of an international network. As a result of the workshop a series of good practices, materials and ways of engagement will be derived.

The day will be split into ignition talks in the morning and an interactive part in the afternoon:

Ignition talks in the morning

  • Welcome and short introduction (Silvia Wissel, GO FAIR)
  • Terms4FAIRskills, a terminology for data stewardship and its use cases in training (Dr Angus Whyte, University of Edinburgh)
  • Activities of the dini working group in Germany (Dr Karsten Peters, German Climate Computing Center – DKRZ)
  • Lessons learned from teaching FAIR RDM for students (Cord Wiljes, University Bielefeld)
  • Data stewardship in the Netherlands (Jasmin Böhmer, UMC Utrecht)

Knowledge Café in the afternoon

  • Participants will be split into groups rotating around 5 tables covering topics presented in the morning.
  • This helps to get an interactive session and provide all participants with a good overview of possible tools.

The GO FAIR initiative aims to make data findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable. Its members – the GO FAIR Implementation Networks – cover a range of activities based on three pillars. By organizing this workshop, the GO FAIR International Support and Coordination Office intends to foster activities within the “GO TRAIN” pillar which focuses on FAIR training and skills.
