This fall, Research Data Netherlands (RDNL), Digital Curation Centre (DCC) and the University of Edinburgh will organize the online course ‘Delivering Research Data Management Services’ for the third time. The registration is open.

Results from a collaboration between RDA Europe, FAIRsFAIR, OpenAIRE, FREYA and EOSC-hub have just been published in Patterns in an article entitled Recommendations for Services in a FAIR Data Ecosystem.

FAIRsFAIR surveyed 66 currently active service providers, repository managers, data services managers, and users to discover their thoughts and opinions about the FAIR certification of repositories and other data services.

This autumn, a new round of the course Essentials 4 Data Support will start. Essentials 4 Data Support is an introductory course for those who (want to) support researchers in storing, managing, archiving and sharing their research data.

Until 11 August 2020 it is possible to comment on a deliverable of the project FAIRsFAIR – Fostering FAIR Data Practices in Europe. This feedback will be included in the new version, which will be released at the end of August.

On July, 17, 2020, DANS has joined OpenAIRE Legal Entity (LE) as a regular member. This means that DANS will remain involved with OpenAIRE even after the current OpenAIRE Advance project, funded by Horizon 2020, has ended. OpenAIRE Advance is set to run until the end of February 2021.

On 10 September 2020, DANS is organizing an online workshop with themes related to the exchange of data in the field of research information, in collaboration with the KB, the national library, and the Library of Leiden University.

Recently, the FREYA project launched the video “FREYA – The Power of PIDs”. The video explains how researchers can use PIDs.
