EOSC-Nordic is hosting a workshop for stakeholders of community data repositories in the Nordic and Baltic region. The event is a one-day workshop “FAIRification of Nordic and Baltic data repositories“  held online April 22, 2020.

The goal is to provide guidelines and specific recommendations for organisations hosting data repositories to maximise the reusability of research data hosted by such entities. To initiate the process and facilitate individual recommendations the EOSC-Nordic project has executed FAIR Maturity evaluations of more than 100 repositories in the region. The results will be shared with the community during February-March 2020 and will constitute the basis for recommendations intended to guide communities in making their data repository FAIRer. 

The importance and added value of FAIRifying data repositories to adhere to the FAIR principles will be discussed, as well as how the evaluations were carried out using FAIR metric indicators. Based on the evaluation results, individually tailored recommendations will be provided to the communities and a presentation on how the EOSC-Nordic project can facilitate limited support through community hackathons, networking, and guidelines to improve the FAIR scores.

Who should attend?

Research data repository managers, repository developers, community stakeholders (e.g. data stewards)


22 April 2020 at 9.00 – 14:30 CEST
