PaNOSC was invited to attend the kick-off meeting of the H2020 project FAIRsFAIR, which took place on 14-15 March 2019 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

Jonathan Taylor, Head of Data Management and Software Center Division at the PaNOSC partner, the European Spallation Source – ESS, presented PaNOSC at the H2020 project FAIRsFAIR kick-off meeting held in Amsterdam on 14-15 March 2019.

After the welcome opening by the project coordinator, Ingrid Dillo, and an overview of the project by the leaders of the work package focused on management, the other our EOSC cluster projects were presented. For PaNOSC, Jonathan Taylor, Head of Data Management and Software Center Division at the European Spallation Source – ESS, presented PaNOSC and its main objectives and challenges.

Contributions by representatives of the EOSC Executive Board and the EOSC-secretariat completed the programme of the first day of the event, together with the presentations of all work packages in the project.

On the second day, practical issues on communication tools and best practices were discussed, followed by breakout sessions specific for each WP, to discuss the next steps of implementation.

FAIRsFAIR – Fostering FAIR Data Practices in Europe FAIRsFAIR is a pan-European collaboration of 22 partners, aiming to support the implementation of the EOSC by nurturing a FAIR data culture among the social sciences and humanities research communities in Europe and the uptake of good practices in making research data FAIR. FAIRsFAIR will facilitate sharing of knowledge, expertise, guidelines, courses and education needed to turn the FAIR principles into reality. On the technical level, the project seeks to support the development and certification of repositories. By doing so, it will contribute to the broader change required to achieve widespread adoption of FAIR practices within the EOSC and beyond.
