On 26 January 2018, the kick-off meeting took place about GO TRAIN, one of three GO FAIR pillars.
Barend Mons (GO FAIR International Support and Coordination Office, GFISCO): “The High Level Expert Group report on the EOSC mentions an urgent need to educate and equip up to 500,000 data stewards in Europe. The GO TRAIN pillar will train individuals that will make the best use of FAIR data and services as well as data stewards that are capable of providing those services.
More than 20 people were present at the kick off meeting. GO TRAIN is one of three GO FAIR pillars: GO CHANGE and GO BUILD. Hugh Shanahan (Royal Holloway, University of London): “We used the meeting to discuss how to instigate a concerted action of global FAIR data training providers.”
