The conference takes place Tuesday the 20th of November 2018, 9.00 – 16.30 (includes a reception after the conference) in   

Danish National Archives, Tøjhusgade 1, Copenhagen.

The conference program features presentations from FAIR data experts, data management specialists and researchers, that each will give their take on what ‘FAIR’ means for them, what barriers they encounter when trying to make data FAIR and which tools can be used to overcome these barriers. Finally, we will discuss how ‘FAIR’ is not only a technical concept, but also a mindset.

For more details on the conference:


The FAIR data principles have been published in 2016 as an attempt to maximize the re-usability of research data. Realizing that “open data is more than disclosure” on one hand and that “not all data can be open” on the other hand, the 15 principles have been designed to guide researchers, research institutions and service providers to make data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Re-usable. They have since found their way into policies of funding agencies, publishers and universities.

However, applying these principles in practice is not straightforward, in particular considering the vast amount of data types and traditions in the different disciplines. This conference addresses this gap and presents a practical toolbox for applying these principles across disciplines.

This conference presents the highlights and conclusions of the “FAIR across” (“FAIR på tværs”) project, that 6 Danish institutions (Copenhagen University, DTU, Aalborg University, CBS, the Royal Library and the Danish National Archives) have conducted throughout 2018 for the Danish National Research Data Management Forum, investigating the challenges and benefits of FAIR data within different fields of research.
