Our Aim is to connect FAIR stakeholders and foster a community where FAIR approaches can be shared, discussed, and advanced collaboratively.
New Network Facilitates Information Collection and Exchange of Worldwide COVID-19 Data for Researchers and Policy Makers
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.
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, and provide a FAIR basics overview: what are the FAIR Data Principles, how you can apply them (or not) and what you can do to FAIRify your data that causes the least amount of pain but has the most effect. In addition, we will announce upcoming events in the GO FAIR webinar series.
Join us on 2020 August 27-28, for the FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable, reusable) lesson global sprint. The sprint is being organised through CarpentryCon @ Home with partners from around the world (see lesson sprint Etherpad).
