Research – in general terms – produces ever more data. It is desirable that this research data remains usable for follow-up research. In practice, this proves difficult. The FAIR principles have been formulated to address this issue. Data must be Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable. Using these as guiding principles is known as FAIR Data Stewardship.

In this short course, which has been developed in collaboration with the GO-FAIR Foundation, you will gain a basic understanding of FAIR Data Stewardship. 

Aimed at
Researchers, managers, policy makers and professionals who encounter FAIR Data Stewardship themes.
