Rise, become popular and be forgotten: that is the fate of any file format. Want to learn how to make predictions about the lifecycle of file formats in an e-repository? And how do you know which stage of this life cycle your files are in? In this workshop, DANS-er Valentijn Gilissen will take you through the results of the study Monitoring Obsolete File Formats. You will also get to work with the results yourself. The workshop, given in Dutch, is free but registration is required.

At national level, the French Ministry of Research has developed a platform: Recherche Data Gouv (RDG). It has been designed to support research teams in their work of structuring data to make it easy to find, accessible, interoperable and reusable, in other words, in line with the "FAIR" principles. The "FAIR Implementation Workshop - French Data Management Clusters" will present the French data management clusters who aim to be close to research teams so they can provide researchers with initial expertise in rational research data management. Registration is free but mandatory.

Work on knowledge infrastructures of the past decade has shown that infrastructures are central to many crucial types of knowledge about climate change, human migration or biodiversity. They are also important in supporting diversity and pluralism in knowledge production. But how can knowledge infrastructures best be evaluated?

More and more surveys are conducted both qualitatively and quantitatively to approach complex issues. During this online lecture, the added value of this and the challenges you may encounter in doing so will be discussed from various angles. For example, how do you ensure good cooperation between quantitative and qualitative researchers? In which research areas can mixed-methods research offer an appropriate solution? And what innovative ways are there to shape mixed-methods research? SCP, Sciensano (Belgian public health research centre) and I&O/Ipsos will share their experiences. This lecture will be held in Dutch.

At National Research Software Day, researchers, policymakers, Research Software Engineers and community leaders are invited to come together to celebrate the power of collaboration and community for quality research software.

We will look into the possibilities for sharing and reusing data when doing qualitative research. Ricarda Braukmann, data station manager at DANS, will present the guidebook and decision tree that she and her colleagues have created to assist their researchers in this matter. We will also give the floor to researchers to share their success stories and/or challenges when trying to open up their research. Our goal is to discover which approach qualitative researchers could follow to adhere to the Open Science principles.

Research, and how it is conducted, is ever-changing and requires those that are tasked in its support to also keep up-to-date in Research Data Management, Open Access and Open Science in general. OpenAIRE's train-the-trainer bootcamps aim at empowering trainers with the knowledge and the know-hows of Open Science so they can pass it onto the researchers and students themselves, and ultimately help create a more open, transparent and accessible research ecosystem.

The Coalition for Advancing Research Assessment (CoARA) is a group of organisations who work on harmonising the assessment of research. It takes into account practices and activities that maximise the quality and impact of research. It involves basing assessment primarily on qualitative judgment, for which peer review is central, supported by responsible use of quantitative indicators. This FAIR Implementation Workshop - "Assessing national current FAIR-enabling capabilities" will focus on the topic of research assessment to help the selected candidates to draft their FAIR implementation action plan by taking into account the research assessment aspect. Registration is free but mandatory.
