E-RIHS is working hard to realise its ambition to develop a European infrastructure that provides access to international laboratory facilities, research data and a network of knowledge and expertise. Within the Dutch E-RIHS infrastructure, DANS contributes to the FAIRification of the Dutch data landscape using a needs analysis.

On January 13th, 2022, DANS played a central role in the workshop co-organised by FAIRsFAIR, SSHOC, and EOSC-Nordic regarding the creation and facilitation of a European network of FAIR-enabling Trustworthy Digital Repositories (TDRs). The workshop provided interesting insights into the next steps towards the creation of this network.

Last week, the European Commission awarded an amount of 10 million euros to a consortium that will implement the FAIR principles in the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). The project, in which 28 partners from 10 European member states work together, will be led by DANS deputy director Dr. Ingrid Dillo. It will start on May 1, 2022 and will run for three years.

The ACME-FAIR guide, designed to help managers of research data management (RDM) and related professional services self-assess how they enable researchers to adopt FAIR data principles, is now open for public comment.

The Social Sciences and Humanities Open Cloud (SSHOC) project hosts a trainers directory – an inventory of trainers operating in the field of social sciences.
