Advancing FAIR in the US
Our Aim is to connect FAIR stakeholders and foster a community where FAIR approaches can be shared, discussed, and advanced collaboratively.
Today, July 17, 2020, we are announcing the launch of the GO FAIR US website. The GO FAIR Professional Development Workshop (February 25-27, 2020) highlighted a need to create a place to connect FAIR stakeholders and foster a community where FAIR approaches can be shared, discussed, and advanced collaboratively. We see the website playing this central role to furthering our goals.
The FORCE11 Scholarly Communication Institute or FSCI is a summer school that helps researchers, students, administrators, funders, librarians, publishers, and other informational professionals learn about new approaches to communicating research in a collaborative environment. The institute has moved online for 2020 and will run from August 3 - 13. A number of FAIR-related events are scheduled, listed below:
Save the date! On October 15 9:00-10:00 PT (check your timezone) GO FAIR US will kick off a webinar series on FAIR. The initial webinar will introduce the GO FAIR initiative, provide background on the FAIR Principles, some ways in which they are being applied, and what training efforts are underway. We will also discuss next steps on how we can grow the FAIR community in the US and how you can get involved. At the webinar, we will also announce upcoming events in the GO FAIR webinar series. As the event approaches we will provide further information on registration. See you there!
