European Project BlueBridge organised a free workshop "FAIR friendly research data catalogues: How far are we?" on Monday 3 April 2017, from 14:00 to 16:00 CET, a co-located event with the 9th RDA Plenary Meeting.
This workshop aimed to bring together representatives of H2020 projects, e-infrastructures and other European initiatives currently dealing with research data catalogues, to understand how they are approaching the FAIR principles, what status they are at and to discuss together how to move forward. Data users were also welcome at the workshop to describe their requirements and their experience in the use of such catalogues.
During the workshop, EUDAT representative Heinrich Widmann (German Climate Computing Center - DKRZ) discussed about "EUDAT-B2FIND: A FAIR-friendly and interdisciplinary data catalogue", presenting the cross-disciplnarity of the service and its compliance with the FAIR data principles.
Registrations to the events are now closed. Check out the workshop's agenda
