Online NFDI NeXus Workshop

More and more demand is generated by large funding agencies around the world that researchers publish their data in open-access repositories in a reusable, FAIR way. This is also supported by EU and German federal research agencies as shown by the developments of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), and German National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI) projects.

Such a movement requires that the data is annotated with well defined metadata, where the naming convention also follows standards. In order to achieve this, researchers have to be able to access the measured raw data together with any results derived by subsequent data processing. 

On 17-18 March, PaNOSC will contribute to the online NFDI NeXus workshop, with presentations on NeXus at ESRF and H5Web, the web-based HDF5 file viewer.

The overall workshop reviews the opportunities provided by the scientific community standard NeXus. It will be an occasion to discuss the use of the NeXus glossary/ontology, corresponding data format and FAIR Data management in general.
