The FAIR principles make a clear distinction between data and their metadata. Metadata has a crucial role in providing information about data so that potential data users will be able to decide whether the data match their needs. In a globally distributed data scenario, the possibility to interact with different repositories commonly improves interoperability and, therefore, results in efficiency gains for all stakeholders.
In a virtual, half-day workshop organised by the team behind the recently published report D2.3 which defines the key features of FAIR repositories, standard interfaces for metadata interaction between repositories will be defined, using work on FAIR Data Point as the basis for discussion.
Closely linked to a preceding workshop entitled Minimum Metadata Schema for semantic artefacts to be held on 29 April, the workshop will be of interest to experts on vocabulary services, semantic tools and interoperability. Delegates are warmly invited to register for both events.
Access to this meeting is only possible through registration for the event. In case of any difficulties joining the meeting please contact Gerard.firstname.lastname@example.org
