The first session offered was on the RDA-NL Community by Ingrid Dillo and Marjan Grootveld. About 400 Dutch people are individual members of the international Research Data Alliance (RDA ). As many RDA-NL members are also in the LCRDM network, the RDA-NL membership is informed within LCRDM and thus also in this session. Central to the breakout sessions were the brand new RDA “10 Things for Curating Reproducible and FAIR Research” or CURE-FAIR, – which are relevant for data curators and information professionals in charge of publishing and archiving FAIR and computationally reproducible research. For some participants, the “Things” discussed already fit their workflow well, for others less so.

Learning from data stewards: strengthening knowledge exchange
The second session built on survey results from the ODISSEI project and was hosted by Francesca Morselli and Marjan Grootveld. The focus in this session was on knowledge exchange in the social sciences and beyond. This included highlighting ODISSEI’s Fair Support webpage. In one breakout session, participants then discussed how they apply “FAIR enough” in practice, as 100% FAIRness is almost always out of reach. In the other session, data stewards confirmed that much attention is still needed for proper awareness of FAIR, but moreover for data reuse, for which FAIRness is an important building block.
