DANS Data Trail Workshop – FAIR data assessment tools: an evaluation

Event date:

23 November 2021

Location: Online

On Tuesday, November 23, between 15:30 and 17:00 CET, the DANS Data Trail Workshop: FAIR data assessment tools: an evaluation will take place.

In close collaboration with the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM), Ammar Ammar (Maastricht University) conducted a study in which several FAIR assessment tools are evaluated based on criteria specifically designed for this study. During this Data Trail workshop, we will discuss his upcoming paper on this topic and apply the same criteria to DANS’s FAIR-Aware tool. The audience will get the opportunity to explore the tool and to discuss their feedback, following the same approach as in Ammar’s work. How does FAIR-Aware evaluate FAIRness? And how relevant and user-friendly is this tool? We are looking forward to discussing these issues with our audience, and connecting the RIVM experiences with FAIR evaluation to the work of DANS in the same field. Researchers, research supporters, policy makers, and repository managers are warmly welcomed to join and share their input in what will likely be an inspiring discussion.
