We are pleased to invite the research support community, policymakers, and researchers to our upcoming Open Day on 14 November 2024. Join us for an insightful event dedicated to promoting Open Data & Open Science and its principles.

Every two years, the Dutch Data Prize is awarded to an individual or team that makes research data FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable).It’s now possible to nominate a dataset.

On 6 March 2024, MLCommons (an Artificial Intelligence engineering consortium) announced the release of Croissant, a metadata format to help standardise machine learning (ML) datasets. The aim of Croissant is to make datasets easily discoverable and usable across tools and platforms. This is highly relevant in the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) tasks on FAIR data sustainability and important for Linked Data in general.
