FAIRsFAIR is organizing a set of stakeholders webinars with organisations which develop and offer Open Science and FAIR data education and training. Data collected through FAIRsFAIR and published in the “FAIR in European Higher Education” report confirms that research and academic libraries are usually the main partner in the provision of training and support for research data management inside universities. The data also shows that universities are very interested in advancing data science/management competencies at bachelor, master and doctoral stage.

This webinar, jointly organized with the LIBER Digital Skills for Library Staff & Researchers Working Group co-chairs, seeks to identify and discuss possible approaches to move forward in this area between participants from the LIBER community and FAIRsFAIR.

Objectives

  • Identify Open Science and FAIR data education and training initiatives in HEI.
  • Define the key elements of an institutional strategy towards the integration of FAIR Data competences in higher education curricula.
